My objective is to love and teach children while being able to stay at home with my 2 little ones. I want to fill their lives with a Christ centered example and teach them the basics of ABC, Colors, Shapes, Number and have fun while doing it….and then move on to bigger things, even reading!


I am a wife and mother of 4 children. Nate is 18 and going to enlist in the Navy, Kayla is 17 and hoping to go to college on a full ride for her cheer scholarships, Sophia is 7, and Jon is 5. I love children and teaching them in a fun and exciting way! I am the daughter of a Pastor, so in addition to all my experience in working in schools, I have also been teaching Sunday School and served in all Children’s Ministry areas since I was 12 years old. I really believe that God gave me the gift of teaching and a special love for children. I have successfully run this in-home day for 3 full years now and have had a wonderful experience. 5 or more of my students are off to Kindergarten in the fall and they are more than ready!!!
