I am greatly blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve as the Fourth Grade Teacher this year at Star of Bethlehem.  I pray that God uses me to best serve the children and families in my care and to instruct them not only in academics but in the truths of God's Word.  Here at Star, teachers have the privledge of instructing children every day about their Savior, Jesus and to then send our students out into the world one day so that they too can share with others this wonderful message!
