Seventh-day Adventist Christian Education is my passion.  It is so exciting to be a part of the largest protestant parochial school system in the world--changing lives one student at a time.  With an undergraduate degree in Business Education from Southern Adventist University, I began my teaching career in 1983. In 1995 I completed my MA degree in Corporate and Organizational Communication from Fairleigh Dickinson University. During these past many years I have continued to teach but have added business manager, registrar, vice principal, and principal to my resume.  Teaching isn't a job to me, it is my life.

Classroom Philosophy
In my classroom I don't want students to just learn English and Business/Technology.  I want them to learn how to be respectful; how to be good citizens on this earth; how to listen for God's quiet whispers; how to recognize the life journey God would like for each student; how to be ready for high school and college; how to believe in oneself.  *Students are expected to show respect for me, the other students, the school and our classroom.
  • Students are expected to try.
  • Students are expected to make NO excuses.
  • Students are expected to expect the most from themselves.
  • Students are expected "to be thinker,s and not mere reflector's of other men's thoughts..." Education p. 17.
