What is your life verse?  Proverbs 3:5-6       

Why do you teach? I love to share the wonders of history with my students...to show how the hand of God has influenced our world. I also want to share my life experiences as a teacher, coach, college student, father, and soldier to help the students be more well rounded individuals.
