Ms. Root

Principal and Preschool Director


I began teaching in 1991, but when I joined the Our Savior Lutheran Church and School staff in 1994, I knew I had found my ministry – my home. Prior to teaching, I worked both as a staff writer for Coral Ridge Ministries, an outreach of D. James Kennedy’s Coral Ridge Presbyterian church, and as a free lance writer. With certifications in Elementary Education and English (grades 6 through 12), along with graduate level courses in reading instruction, I have served the Lord here by working with children at almost every grade level. In 2009, I was named the Florida-Georgia District’s Teacher of the Year, an honor that I share with this amazing, supportive school community. As the mother of two, grown children, I understand what it is like to share your child with the staff of a school, trusting that they will help your child be successful, fulfilled, and pleasing to God.

Favorite Bible Verse

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”
