I have had a love affair with Temple Christian School since it was a dream of the members of Temple Baptist Church. Participating in many events to raise funds to purchase the land at Randol Mill Road, I have fond memories of helping to hang the first blackboards in the new elementary building on Randol Mill Road. It was a natural choice for me to send my three children to TCS. All three, Allyson, Autumn, and Austen, attended the school for 13 years each. Upon graduation, my three Temple Christian graduates each received large scholarships to attend Texas A & M University. Now adults, these graduates of TCS are engineers. I have seen the benefits of a Temple Christian School education in my own family. As a certified teacher, I decided to become a full-time part of Temple Christian School in 1996. I joyfully remained on staff until May 2009, when I left on a personal sabbatical for two years. A former long-term faculty member of TCS, I have served in many areas at TCS including 15 years as the high school guidance counselor. It was my privilege to return to Temple Christian School for the 2013-2014 school year. This year, I am looking forward to teaching English to the Class of 2018!
Reading, editing, researching, and studying literature have been long-life passions of mine. It is a blessing to guide high school students in each of these areas. Even if my students do not share my love in each of these areas, they will learn the processes. My senior students will, also, learn the process of applying for a college; completing resumes, conducting interviews, understanding literature, and the steps of research. I appreciate that parents have chosen Temple Christian School for their children's education. I consider the opportunity to teach these young people an honor and a privilege. While receiving education, my prayer is that each student will grow in the wisdom of the Lord, and choose to serve Him. I believe I was called by God to teach and consider each of my students to be a unique creation and perfectly designed by the Lord.
