Most enjoyable aspects of your teaching ministry: I like the ability to share our faith openly in every aspect of the day.  It makes all the difference in relationships with students, parents, and colleagues.

Best part of teaching at Lutheran High School of Sioux Falls? I thoroughly enjoy working with the students and seeing their faith mature as they progress from one year to the next.

What are your hobbies? My hobbies are playing organ, directing choir, reading, and writing my own Bible studies for the Bible class I teach.

Where else can we see you in the community? I enjoy volunteering at The Banquet when the opportunity arises or helping with "Feeding the Starving Children."  I teach Bible class when asked at our church, as well as do topic presentations when needed.

What is your favorite Bible verse?  My Confirmation verse, John 10:27-28
