Why do you teach at OCS? My passion to work with children began at a young age, volunteering within the nursery and Children’s Ministry department at church. The desire to teach children about Christ was imbedded in my heart while serving two years doing mission work in Mexico. I remember significantly the first family I led to Christ through showing God’s love to their child. It was through my experiences in Mexico, to see all children have the opportunity of an education, that I made the decision to return to the U.S. to pursue a teaching license. I continue to teach in Christian education so I can share the love of Christ through prayer and devotions with families.
