Ps 102:18

Originally From:

Ohio

Why I came to DCS:

I was already a sub here at the time. A missionary spoke at my church and challenged me to get out of my comfort zone. I realized I had grown too comfortable in my job and needed to transition into something more challenging. The next week, Mr. McDonald asked me if I was interested in teaching here full time. I took that as a sign from God that I needed to make the switch from teaching at Columbus State Community College to DCS. I do not regret the change one bit.

When I was younger I wanted to:

Be involved with my parents in what they were doing. I spent a lot of time just hanging out and learning from them. I wanted to be under the car or in the basement with dad and in the kitchen or outdoors with mom.  It was my parents' interest in things that spurred me on to search out the hows and why's of life. They provided me many opportunities to learn and discover the world around me.

Hobbies/Interests outside of DCS:

Garden, Cook, Quilt/sew, Hike, Boating, Fish, Hunt, Snowmobile/4-Wheel, 4-H, Hunter Education Instructor, Read and somewhere along the line...sleep.

Favorite Bible Verse:

Psalm 18:2, KJV

Originally From:

Columbus, Ohio

Why I came to DCS:

My contact was Carolyn Nichols who I believe was the first teacher at Delaware Christian School (when it was only a Kindergarten). Mrs. Nichols attended my church, Berean Bible. I grew up with her two children who attended and graduated from Delaware Christian. After graduate school, I was looking to return to Ohio to teach. (Prior to graduate school, I had taught for three years in Pennsylvania.) I had interviewed at three schools in Ohio, and as I was literally praying about God's will, Mr. McDonald called. I came for a second interview, loved the atmosphere, felt a peace about being here and accepted the position (after being interviewed by the school board).

When I was younger I wanted to:

be a farmer (my grandpa was a farmer). Then I wanted to be a veterinarian until I learned more about what all a veterinarian has to do while I was in 4-H. When I started college, I was going to be an English Education major, but fell in love with the Christian teaching of history!

Hobbies/Interests outside of DCS:

I like to read--mostly non-fiction. I like to take short trips around Ohio. My favorite television show--as nearly all of my students know-- is the Andy Griffith Show. Peanuts is a favorite "hobby" of mine. I am very involved in my church--Children's Church, Patch the Pirate Club and College and Career Sunday School class.
