St. Paul's Christian Day School

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Formed in 1984, the St. Paul’s Christian Day School (CDS) is committed to sharing the love of Jesus Christ with children, their families, and the community through a quality Early Childhood and Elementary Education program that promotes academic excellence and biblical values through a developmentally appropriate and fun environment.

The Day School focuses on the whole child. Nurturing the spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical growth of children allows each child to recognize and develop to their potential.

St. Paul's CDS works to create a solid partnership between home, school, and church, which results in success for the children.

    I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Texas A&M University, taught five years in the public school system, and have been director of St. Paul’s Christian Day School for 30 years. My husband, Rob, and I are both Brenham natives.  We are members of St. Paul’s, and are blessed with three daughters; Jill, her husband, Josh and their children, Isabelle and Luke; Jodi, her husband, Daniel and their children, Grace, Wyatt, and Annie; and Jan and her husband, Mark and their son Jed. We enjoy family time at the farm, Aggie sports, and traveling. I also love to read!  Family ministry is my passion, and I love my job!


    I am originally from the southside of Houston, but moved to Brenham in 2009, where I immediately fell in love with “small town living." In Brenham, I met my wife Jennifer, a local Kindergarten teacher. Together we blended a beautiful family of four daughters--Camille, Jordan, Natalie, and Peyton. I am a Pastor at Grace Community Church in Bellville, TX. I received my education in pastoral leadership at the College of Biblical Studies and continue to study Christian counseling through Liberty University. I believe that sharing the gospel of Christ does not end on Sunday’s, but is about reaching all levels of the community every day. Which is why I have also been in Christian education for 13 years, sharing the love of Christ and helping train children up in the way He would have them go. My family and I are blessed to be a part of this wonderful community and look forward to many years of service here at St. Paul’s Christian Day School.


    I am a Certified Public Accountant and have a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Accounting from Texas A&M University. I have work experience in public accounting in San Antonio and Houston. I have also worked for a local accounting firm in Brenham. Me and my husband, Travis, were both born and raised in Brenham and enjoy raising our two children, Wayne and Molly, in our hometown. We enjoy spending time on our farm and visiting the beach in our free time. The best part of my job is that I get to put my accounting knowledge and love for children to use here at St. Paul’s Christian Day School. It is truly a great place and I love being a part of this organization.
