Tempe Teacher


I have been a high school math teacher of Algebra I, Algebra II for 4 years. I was a Missionary in Kislovodsk, Russia for 6 years with the Navigators, a non-denominational Christian group. We worked in orphanages, schools, and churches. We were some of the first to hand Bibles out to people in Russia. We were there right after communism fell, so it was the first time they had seen “foreigners.” I met my husband there and we adopted our first son from one of the orphanages that we worked with while in Russia.

I was a Houseparent in a boys’ home in Chestnut Mountain, GA for three years. We lived with 7 boys full-time, ages 12-18, and by then, we had 3 children of our own. We moved to Oklahoma where my husband pastored a church. I stayed at home for a few years, and then worked part time as a Deputy Court Clerk, and a church secretary. I led the women’s ministry, the children’s ministry, and anything else that the church needed!

We moved to AZ, where I became the receptionist for Leading Edge Academy. The following year, I transferred to their Queen Creek campus to teach high school math, and then became the high school math and science teacher at the Autism Academy. Email Me!
