Born and raised in Nebraska, Mary moved to Newton with her husband and three kids in 2014. She homeschooled her youngest two for three years and discovered that kids learn in very different ways. Each child is a reflection of the Lord and He makes each of us unique with special gifts. She was challenged to find different styles of learning for her kids where they could learn and thrive. After sending them to Newton Bible, she worked several years in the SPED department at South Breeze Elementary School. She enjoys her family, music, coffee, spending time outside, and her dog Brynn. Watching people grow and deepen their walk with Jesus is the most rewarding thing she could be a part of.
