I cannot believe it, but this is my 24th year of teaching, during this time I have experienced many exciting adventures with my students. It is amazing how much teachers learn from their students. In my classroom it is evident that I believe together students and teachers create an engaging learning environment.   

I am happily married and have two boys. As a family we enjoy going to church, taking trips to the lake, fishing, and of course with three guys in the house I must include hunting. I do enjoy shopping, reading every spare minute I can find, and spending time with my extended family.

A book I would like to suggest for parents to read is "Working It Out" by Abby Rike. She endured the most profound loss and through her faith and the help of her family she has been able to meet the day to day challenges of overwhelming grief.

I am also a fan of music and I would love to encourage you and your family to enjoy the radio station K-LOVE. I find this station extremely inspirational. I LOVE it. The devotionals and messages they share daily are great for the soul. Listen, enjoy and may God bless you through the ministry of music.

Love, prayers and blessings,

Mrs. Ewen
