“It has been a blessing to share the Word of God with my students. I love being able to share with them about this amazing God that made them and loves them. I look forward to joining the team at Heritage and serving God with so many amazing teachers, students, staff, and families. I am excited to be the hands and feet of Jesus as I share His love with my students this year as the 1st grade teacher at Heritage this Fall!”
