Additional RAA Responsibilities
Teachers at RAA wear many hats; teacher, counselor, mentor, team member, and Christian example. It’s lots of work but has eternal rewards.
The best thing is spending time with my family, snow skiing, water skiing, and just being outdoors. I love reading and greatly dislike shopping (although Amazon is wonderful!). I’m not excited about collecting anything that collects dust. Children collect dirt, not dust, so they’re great!
Favorite Bible Text
Just a few… As a teacher Isaiah 40:28-31is very meaningful and important to me. Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.[ Jeremiah 29:11-13 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
