“Love is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love has no fear; it does not worry; love keeps no records of wrongs; never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.” 1 Corinthians 13.
More than anything, Mrs. Williams wants her students to know that they are loved by God. In her preschool classroom, she likes to emphasize Bible stories, Bible verses, worship songs, letters, numbers, colors, shapes, emergent math and writing, fine motor skills and social skills.
After living in Roseburg for nearly 18 years, Mrs. Williams returned to Eugene and joined the team at Willamette Christian School in 2018. While living in Roseburg, she traveled to Eugene every week for two years while attending Northwest Christian University, where she received her teaching degree. Since then, she has taught first grade, third grade and middle school. She is married and has two grown daughters.
Her favorite pastime is spending time with family and friends, often singing favorite songs—from old classics to new worship songs—gathered around the piano. She enjoys learning about France and day hopes to visit Paris.
“If I look at each verse of 1 Corinthians 13, I see it guides me to healthy communication, healthy relationships and a thriving ministry,” she says. “I want to be a part of a ministry that focuses on what we can take with us to our eternal destination: LOVE. I hope to impart the realization of God’s love to my students. We can only love others well when we realize that God loves us.”
