Anne knew she wanted to be a teacher after the fifth grade and discovered her heart for missions while in high school. After a college classmate introduced her to The Esther School, Anne knew this was a place that would combine her love for teaching and missions. Anne is excited about the way that education will affect the lives, communities, and futures of the children she will be serving. Anne will be serving as a resource teacher as well as teaching some subjects for the children of the missionary families.
