Dear Families,

I am so excited to be teaching your 3rd graders this year at Legacy Christian Academy!  I look forward to getting to know each kiddo and working with each family to enrich their school year.  We will let our “lights shine” together and learn what the Lord has for us this year. My expectation is that each student in this class will end the year prepared for success in fourth grade.

This is my second year teaching at Legacy Christian Academy, and is my twenty-second year of teaching!  Nineteen years have been in 3rd grade! I am a graduate of Illinois State University with a degree in Elementary Education and a second degree in Early Childhood Education.  While teaching in Illinois, I had the privilege of co-teaching with a Special Education specialist for 14 years. We had what is considered an Inclusion classroom which allowed the kiddos with special needs to work, learn and interact in a regular education classroom.  This was such a wonderful learning experience for me!

I have been married to my husband Jeff for 41 years (YIKES!!) and have 5 married children with 13 grandchildren.  Two of those grandchildren attend Legacy! We live in St. Louis Park where we are still getting acclimated to the Minnesota life as we moved up from Illinois in 2016.

As the year begins and progresses, please feel free to contact me through email or school phone, ext. 283.  My philosophy of education is that parents, teachers, and students work best when working in tandem. Also, that “each child will learn, but not always on the same day or at the same time.

I will be in communication with you each day through a daily Assignment Sheet and the Take-Home folder.  I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have the opportunity to work in such a Christ-centered school.  I look forward to living life with your child this year learning about God and becoming a loving community together...one which encourages, supports and learns together!

Blessings on this new school year,
