It is my privilege to serve the Lord by teaching and ministering to the children that God has placed before us. It is my ministry to prepare them - both academically and spiritually - for what God has in store for their lives. My goals are to fill my students with the knowledge and love of God, prepare them academically for fifth grade, and help them develop an appreciation for the State of Wisconsin in the context of the fourth grade curriculum.

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."  Prov. 22:6
