Growing up in South Houston, I was the daughter of a small business man.  My family was largely unchurched and graduating from high school was seen as an accomplishment.  I was the first and only member of my family to go to and graduate from college.  While in college, I met my future husband.  He and his group of friends shared Christ’s love and grace with me, and it was not long before I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  Throughout my college years, I devoured the Bible.  I wanted to know everything within the pages of God’s word.  I began college with the hopes of being a high school math teacher, but as my relationship with the Lord grew, he closed that door and opened another.  I went to work for a telecommunications company teaching a proprietary database system to new hires and writing teaching materials for employees.  Seven years later, the Lord closed that door and opened the door to motherhood and homeschooling.  My oldest child struggled through school with several cognitive weaknesses and spent years in cognitive therapy.  I learned to adapt my teaching style to her ever changing day-to-day strengths.  I have become a very patient teacher, and I believe that every student has the ability to learn if we can tap into their strengths and help them overcome their weaknesses.  My educational strengths have always been math and science, and I would be honored to share my passion of these subjects with your student.  It has been my experience that the Lord uses my enthusiasm for these subjects to motivate students to enjoy learning these subjects as well.
