How did you connect to St. Marcus?

I came to St. Marcus because I wanted to join the mission in the community where I live. I want to serve Harambee with the gospel of Christ, also serving alongside my husband in this great work! I have been here for the past four years as the Word of God instructor for grades 5-6 and as the 6th grade Team Lead. Prior to joining St. Marcus, I served as a principal at the Hmong American Peace Academy. I have a total of 19 years in education and four years in school-wide leadership. I am deeply invested in supporting parents and scholars and building meaningful relationships as we grow together in our faith.

What do you love about what you do?
