Why do you love working at CF Academy?:

It brings me utmost joy to teach both spiritual and academic fundamentals. Christ Fellowship Academy gifts me with the opportunity to share the measureless love of Jesus with little hearts eager to be poured into. It is an incredible blessing to prayerfully speak purpose into each child’s heart and watch them blossom into the leaders the Lord has purposed them to be.  I feel incredibly blessed to be part of a leadership team and staff that genuinely supports, cares and encourages one another.

Life Bible Verse:

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD,

and on His law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,

yielding its fruit in season,

whose leaf does not wither,

and who prospers in all he does.” Psalm 1:2-3


Brief educational/department philosophy:

“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from HIM.” Psalm 127:3

As a Christian educator, my highest goal is to highlight the gifts, talents, and abilities the LORD has given each child while maintaining the expected academic environment. I believe each child has his/her unique learning style and specific need(s). Thus, each lesson is tailored with specific instructional methods to ensure each child is learning as God designed them to. My heart’s desire is to translate Christ’s purpose through each positive, nurturing, engaging and spiritually led academic lesson. My greatest desire is  to inspire and infuse each child with a love for learning, but above all, a deep love for Jesus Christ. I strongly believe a positive and supportive parent/teacher relationship is imperative for the continual growth of each student.
