Hi I'm Wendy

I'm a teacher. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 4th grade teacher, and I love working with the children in my class each year. I just graduated with my Master's Degree in Education and English as a Second Language (ESL). I love to read, write, and travel. When I was growing up, my parents took my family all over the United States to see many historical sites. Lately, my sister and I have traveled to several countries all over the world, where we have been able to see so many beautiful sites and experience many different cultures. I also enjoy spending time with my family. One of our favorite activities is watching or attending sporting events - especially football!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my love for Jesus Christ. The teachings of this church about the Savior and His plan for me help me to feel peace and hope in my life, especially when difficult or unexpected challenges come. I am continually amazed at the Savior's love for me, and His forgiveness when I try to change or overcome my weaknesses. I love that this church teaches me to be more like Christ: more loving, more giving, more patient, and more forgiving. Being a Mormon has given me both the direction and the support to try to be a better person and to continually develop and improve my relationships with those around me and with my Savior.

How I live my faith

Being a teacher at a public school has given me many opportunities to serve others. Though I don't teach religion or religious beliefs in my classroom, I try to be a good example of being kind and honest and making positive choices. My goal is always to help the students feel loved and important. I have also had many opportunities to teach others at church. I especially enjoyed when I had the chance to teach the adults in my ward about the New Testament in the Bible. I learned so much about the Savior and His teachings. I was then able to share what I had learned in my study with others. I really enjoy my assignment to visit with other women who attend my ward, talk to them about how they are doing, and help out where I can. I have made many good friends this way and have felt the benefits in my life of having other women come to visit me.
