My passion has always been in education and to instill a love of learning in our children and young adults. I have taught all grade levels at some capacity during my graduate and teaching years from Kindergarten through University. As business owner of Kumon, Incorporated, a Math and Reading After School franchise for 15 years, I have learned that there are no limitations to what a child can learn when given the right materials and the opportunity to practice daily. Through these experiences, I feel that God has equipped me to be at Mt. Zion Christian Academy now in my life.

The Mount Zion Christian Academy, Church Pastor and the School Board have a deep and serious love of this community and have taken bold steps to move the vision of having a positive effect in this community to becoming a reality. Education is the key! The church staff has been very supportive in these efforts as well. It was easy to decide that the people involved are doers and truly want to make a positive change. Our team of awesome teachers and amazing staff are proving every day that they are equipped to make this happen. Of most importance are the MZCA parents who work with us for the good of their children and the community. This is a place that wants success and has hope in the future.
