Elementary Library and Life Skills for Junior High Teacher

Tabernacle holds a very special place in my heart. I attended Tabernacle as a student from kindergarten to eighth grade, worked as a daycare worker for many years, and this is currently my ninth year as a teacher! I received my degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Special Education from Azusa Pacific University. I worked in the LA school district after college but felt the Lord calling me back to the Bay Area to teach at Tabernacle. I taught first grade for seven years, assisted with PE last year, and am taking on a new role as an elective teacher this year. I am excited to teach a Library elective for elementary students and a Life Skills elective for Jr. Highers.  I feel so blessed to teach at a school where I can help instill the importance of education all while helping students reach their God-given potential!
