"I graduated from Greenville College a B.A. in English along with a Certificate to teach English as a Second Language. Currently, I am living in Omaha, Nebraska with my husband and work at Ralston High School in the ESL Department. It is challenging work, but I enjoy it very much. I love being able to apply what I learned through the English classes at Greenville and help the newcomer students learn English for the first time. There is nothing more exciting than finding a place where I am able to serve others through the gifts God has so richly blessed me with. My only hope is that the students I teach now and in days to come will be transformed as much as I have been through my teachers at Greenville College."
