Introducing our Teachers!
This week we will learn a little more about our 2's class teacher aid Miss Evelyn!
I started working at Gethsemane last summer and loved it so much that I decided to stick around for the school year! It is such a blast and a blessing to work with these kids everyday.

I hope to go back to school, and eventually teach American history. I love reading, writing, hiking, and spending time with my kitten, Tea!
