Her favorite part of teaching is seeing a child grasp as skill or task. She also loves the assurance of knowing that children who attend NLCA will know that not only did Christ create them, He also loves them.

Sharon grew up in a Pentecostal Holiness household. She is thankful to have been raised in a home that taught her the power of prayer and that all her thanksgivings are owed to Jesus Christ. She has been a Sunday School years for children ages 3-6. The Word of God is life to her and her family. She works to impart this vision and reality to her students. She knows she is saved by grace, and though she does not feel worthy, she called Christ her Lord and Savior. She clings to Philippians 1:6 which says, "He is not finished working in me yet."
