1st Grade Assistant Teacher
B.A., Early Childhood Education, Augusta State University.
Why did you decide to become a teacher?
When I was in 4th grade, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My mom, Mary Yost, was the 5th grade teacher in the room right next to mine, and every day I saw how spectacular she was and how much her students admired her. When I reached 5th grade, she was my teacher at Mount Pisgah, where her admiration for teaching only solidified my decision to become a teacher. As I grew older, I knew God's calling for me to become a teacher was unwavering and undeniable. I have always been the student to tutor my friends, teach their younger siblings, and edit school papers.
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
My joy comes from teaching others, and that all started with my mom. My favorite part about teaching is watching each individual child grow academically, emotionally, and spiritually throughout the course of the school year. I am so blessed to have the incredible responsibility of teaching and influencing young minds.
