Personal Information: I am the mother of four, having had three of my children attend Cross and Crown, and the grandmother of seven, with five of my grandchildren currently enrolled in the elementary program. When not busy with my west coast family, I enjoy knitting, scrapbooking, beading, and driving cross-country to visit my daughter and grandchildren in North Carolina. I am a member of Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, serving on the Church Council and singing with the Contemporary Worship Team.
Reflection: Since the age of ten, I have wanted to become a teacher and work in the Lutheran School system. All of my educational decisions were made with that goal in mind. I have always enjoyed the challenge teaching brings, no matter what the age level of the students. Today I am excited with the opportunity to help build a firm foundation for our school, and view my role as administrator as a gift from the Lord, that He put me here to meet the need.
