The bells of Rogers School rang to end the school year 2021-22 on June 3, 2022. Its been a wonderful year. Our students entered our classroom in August, 2021 and have grown into becoming a family over the course of the year. Each one shared with others their talents, friendships and trust. We enjoyed learning our letters, numbers, Bible stories, and exploring social studies/science activities. As well, students developed skills in music, p.e., and library/computer time. I have really enjoyed getting to know parents of my students as well. They all have found a special place in my heart.
I seek to provide a safe and caring Christian learning environment that promotes age-appropriate and individualized learning activities. I will strive to encourage children to explore and create, gain information and mastery of new skills, and to learn and practice working and playing with others in a positive way. Most of all, I look forward daily to seeing children happy and involved.
I have finished my fourteenth year of teaching Kindergarten/Pre-1st at Rogers Adventist School and have enjoyed the uniqueness of each year's group of kids. Previously, I was the director and head teacher of the Walla Walla University Child Development Center for nine years.
I have a wonderful husband, Scott, who coaches WWU women's volleyball, substitute teaches, and runs two storage units. I have two wonderful daughters who bring so much joy to my life. Kelsie and Krista are both living in Loma Linda, California loving their careers and enjoying married life.
There is nothing better then to be in a classroom full of wonderful kids!
