Professional Biography

Following graduation from Wheaton College, I joined the business world at a large insurance company.  After a move to Texas, I was hired at a staffing company and further used my business skills to serve in client relations, marketing and sales.  God allowed me to work at home for ten years to raise our three young children before returning to the workforce as a coach and teacher.  After teaching sixth grade Science and Math for six years, I completed a Master’s in Educational Leadership (2006) and moved from the classroom into administration. Most recently, I served as Preschool and Elementary Principal at Westminster Christian School in Miami, FL.

Personal Biography

I am a native Vermonter, but once I left home for college, I have become a city girl.  My husband, Ed, and I married in 1984, and God has blessed us with three children. Our son, Matt, is married to Laura, and they live in San Jose.  Abby, our middle child, was recently married to Alex, an Australian, and they make their home in Brisbane, Australia.  We love to visit them! Our youngest, David, was recently drafted by the New York Mets.  Ed serves as president of Logoi Ministries, and we enjoy travelling and enjoying all types of sports

Christian Philosophy of Education

As educators in a Christian school, we are called to model Christ to our students and families.  This means understanding that God’s Word is central to all we do. We should frame all we do at school, and in life, in light of the knowledge that God is Creator and is in all things.  As a Christian school, we have the privilege to declare Christ as Lord, integrate God’s Word into every action and acknowledge God as the source of all truth.  By using a Biblical narrative that is fully integrated in learning, students gain a Biblical worldview as teachers and administrators reveal Christ in their lives and classroom.  Making Biblical connections to learning and living in our world helps students understand they can make an impact for His Kingdom.  The partnership with students and families that Christian education provides reflects a nurturing community that honors God, encourages and builds relationships, and prepares students for lives of faithful and obedient service to Him.
