It has brought me great joy to see the students I have worked with be successful. I have seen them be successful in life as they have gone on to high school, college and careers in spite of the challenges they have had. It has been such a blessing to see them blossom and develop the talents they have been blessed with, and it’s humbling and encouraging when I run into former students or their parents and am told that I was a part of their success. I see God in every one of the children I come in contact with. They are each unique and special. It has been such a blessing to be His hands and feet and heart as I try to relate to each one in their own way. My husband and I both graduated from West Side as did my dad and my children. I am now blessed to have grandchildren as well as nieces and nephews at West Side Christian. I am a grandmother of 20 and enjoying spending time with them and watching them participate in sports.
