I believe that children learn best through play and exploration. As a teacher, I endeavor to support them in this important work by providing them with engaging toys and materials, guiding them in their interactions with one another, and encouraging them to further their learning with thoughtful questions and suggestions. As a teacher in a Christian school, I consider it a unique privilege to also teach children about their loving Savior, Jesus, and help them develop a relationship with Him through Bible stories, songs, and prayer.
