I come from a unique and varied background. I was raised on a farm in Missouri by two loving, hard-working parents. My mom was a stay-at-home farmer/mom. She had a green thumb and could make most anything grow. My father was a high school chemistry/physics teacher. From my parents, I learned to love nature. I especially enjoy figuring out how things work.
After college, I worked for several years as a chemist, first, in cancer research, then in the petroleum refining industry, followed by a stint in the plastics production industry. When my children were born, the Lord called me to make yet another change. He called me to be a teacher, first, to my own children, then to Fort Worth Adventist Junior Academy.
I was drawn to work for Fort Worth Adventist Junior Academy because it is God and family oriented. The students here are encouraged to reach their highest goals academically, spiritually, and physically. The teachers and staff work tirelessly to provide sound academics as well as spiritual, mental, and physical growth opportunities. We are a family no matter what our background. Jesus is our leader. The creative juices of our students’ thoughts are our drivers.
The 3rd and 4th Grades are a busy, productive class at Fort Worth Adventist Junior Academy. Numerous hands-on projects keep us active, engaged, and learning about God’s wonderfully diverse world. Each child is important. Students love helping to create the message that we’re going to give for our turn at Chapel presentations. Each student gets to decide on which book they want to read each month independently, and how they want to share their enjoyment of the book with their peers. There are numerous Science, Social Studies, Bible, or Language Arts posters, dioramas, experiments, skits, dress-ups, or displays throughout the school year. Your child’s dreams have a place here.
