Years at LCA: 2 year Education: B.S. Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Mississippi Teaching Philosophy: My philosophy is that I believe that the pursuit of knowledge is more than the collection of information. As a Christian educator, I am committed to doing all that is in my power to lead children and their families to a closer relationship with God, to promote students with both competence and character, and develop history makers and world changers for the glory of God. Favorite Bible Verse: Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Favorite quote: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” – A.A.
