I have taught at Cornerstone Christian Academy since 2004. I studied at Trinity Christian College just outside of Chicago, Illinois, and moved back to Canada after four years with my husband, Tyler, and my teaching certificate. My primary area of study was art and literature, but I love teaching all subjects.
I had not intended to become a teacher, neither did I think I would live so near to where I grew up in Belleville, ON. I certainly did not think I would teach in a Christian school. But God has a remarkable sense of humour and He has shown me time and time again that His way is best. Cornerstone was my first teaching experience and I am so thankful for the place God prepared for me on this staff. Teaching with fellow Christians, and having the freedom to assure my students of God's love every day is something I don't take for granted. These students are a daily blessing to me and I have learned to appreciate the lessons they teach me just as much as those I teach them.
This year, while I am on Maternity Leave, three of my children will be here at Cornerstone. My daughter, Sophie, is in fourth grade, Tommy is in senior kindergarten, and Charlie will be entering the Kindergarten Readiness Program. They love Cornerstone as much as I do!
