Dana dreamed of being a detective as a little girl. She was obsessed with Sherlock Holmes and mystery novels. She was actually teaching non-traditional undergraduates when she felt God pressing on her heart to make a move to teach elementary education. She enjoys teaching at a Christian school because she is able to share the love of Jesus every single day.
