   Students at ILS learn that Jesus Christ has given them eternal salvation through grace and that it is not something they must earn.  My hope is that students will see that love from Christ each day from every teacher and staff member.  We are all forgiven and loved children of God.

Personal Biography: I’m married to a wonderful husband named Troy and we have a daughter named Claire who is currently in the middle school program at ILS. We attend Immanuel Lutheran Church. Claire started preschool at ILS when she was 3. I remember how nervous my husband I were to have Claire starting preschool at the age of 3. We met the former preschool director, Mrs. Trish when we came to tour the preschool. After meeting with Mrs. Trish we knew instantly that this is where we wanted Claire to attend Preschool.  I started subbing in the 3yr old classroom years ago and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get my 40hrs in early child care, which led to the opportunity for me to become the Asst Teacher. I’m very excited to be a member of the ILS Preschool Family and currently teaching in the VPK classroom.
