– What is the biggest desire that you hope students will take from your classroom?

That they are loved, that they matter and that God made no mistakes when he created them, they were created for something AMAZING! Also, I’d love for them to internalize that culture changes but the Bible never does! Stand for the truth, know your worth, be bold and brave, and shine bright!
