Kindergarten through Fourth Grade Art Teacher, Librarian
My family moved to Newberg, Oregon, in 2007, when my husband, Geary, became a high school teacher at Veritas School. All three of our sons have attended Veritas from Kindergarten. We have been deeply blessed and encouraged as part of the Veritas community. I have served as a volunteer in classrooms and also behind the scenes in our drama department as set designer, costumer, and flyer and ticket designer.
In 2015, I joined the Veritas staff as a classroom aide in kindergarten. I fell in love with working at the school and being around dedicated teachers and students all day. As a child I wanted to be an artist, a mom, and a teacher. I’m delighted by how God has allowed me to be all three at once and how he’s prepared the way for me to be an art teacher at Veritas. His goodness is unfathomable!
I am eager to help elementary students experience the wonder of God’s creativity as they learn to appreciate the accomplishments of artists who have gone before them. I hope to introduce them to a wide variety of materials and techniques so that they will be able to both practice and appreciate art throughout their careers at Veritas and for the rest of their lives.
