- College Valdosta State University (1999)
I grew up in Binghamton, New York. After high school I attended Youth With A Mission School in Hammonton, New Jersey. After graduating, I served on staff as a bookkeeper for two years. I met my husband there and we moved to Valdosta, Ga. as he was one quarter shy from graduating. His father opened a new business, Colyer’s Jewelers, in 1980 and we have been here ever since! We have 4 children, now grown, and 11 grandchildren to date!
I was a non-traditional student at Valdosta State University graduating in 1999 with a BS in Business Education. I have been employed at St. John School since 2000. I am currently teaching the children of some of the students I taught when I was first hired! I am grateful to be a part of the faculty at St. John. I believe the educational standard is exceptional and it is an honor to be a part of this wonderful community.
PS In writing this short biography I would like to add this link to a song by Casting Crowns that for me sums up my heart towards the people I work for and with, the children I teach, and the God we all love.
