About Me

Degree: Masters in Early Childhood Education
Experience: 30+ Years
Hobbies: Traveling, Reading, Entertaining, and Family

I have worked at Gingercare Christian Academy since the fall of 2004. I taught in the Part Day program until a couple of years ago. I love teaching and it was such a blessing seeing the young children grow during the school year. In the summer of 2011, I moved into the position of director of Gingercare I miss being in the classroom, but now I have a larger group of children that I see during the day and I get to know even more families. It is a dream job. I have taught young children for over 30 years and have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education. I feel blessed to have come to Gingercare where I could teach and share my faith and have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful staff. When I’m not at work, I love to travel, read, entertain and spend time with my family. I am truly blessed.
