Suddenly, another year has passed and I’m in my third year of teaching and my third year at Cornerstone. It is such a blessing to be back again and I look forward to another exciting year with students and staff as well as volunteers and other members who contribute to our work here. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an incredible community and I truly love my job!
This year I’m looking forward to repeating classes. I’ll be teaching the same classes and content as year one; it will be nice to build on and improve things I have done in the past. My class responsibilities remain the same: English Language Arts for all high school levels, Social Studies for grades 7/8, PE for grades 7/8, and Yearbook for grades 9/10. I will also continue to run the student leadership team (STAMP). I enjoy the variety this schedule offers and the opportunities to work with and see so many different students throughout my day.
This school year I am also starting a Masters of Education program through Regent University. The program is entirely online and I will be completing it, Lord willing, over the next couple of years. It’s pretty exciting to be able to continue teaching but also to pick up work as a student again and delve into some deeper reading and writing myself. And, of course, this should benefit my work here at Cornerstone as well!
Teaching is my passion and Cornerstone is a fantastic place to be! It is such a blessing to be able to see God our Father in literature and history and to share His presence and greatness with His covenant children. I pray we will all grow together in wisdom and understanding.
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. -- Proverbs 9:9-10
I am so thankful for the support of the staff and parents here at Cornerstone. I look forward to another year of reading and writing, learning and growing, creating and sharing with my students.
The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn the more places you'll go.
