I am thrilled to join DELTA Ministries after spending over thirty years in public education. During most of those years I taught middle and high school. After receiving my doctorate in educational leadership, I worked as a high school assistant principal of curriculum, instruction, and assessment, a middle school principal, and district coordinator of professional development. Most of my formal training has been in the area of education. My undergraduate work was in secondary education. I then earned a master’s degree in reading, followed many years later by the doctorate. 

In the early eighties I took a leave of absence from teaching to attend Columbia Graduate School of Bible and Missions (now Columbia International University) because I wanted to go on the mission field. The Lord did not lead me to pursue a career in missions at that time, however. After doing adult literacy work in a village and teaching at ELWA Academy in Liberia, West Africa on a one year, short-term assignment, I returned to public education, but my desire was still to serve the Lord in the area of missions in some capacity. 

I volunteered as a member of program staff with DELTA Ministries for a number of years during summers in the early nineties. I am currently actively involved in my church and have led a number of church-based mission trips, where church members work alongside missionaries we support. God’s timing is perfect. It is an answer to prayer to join DELTA Ministries as a staff member.
