Mrs. White cherishes the many wonderful relationships she has been blessed with through her association with Bridgeway families and staff members. “I can always count on my Bridgeway family to support me and pray with me. Through the years, my students have taught me many things. Most importantly, I’ve been privileged to see, first hand, what it means to have the faith of a child. Nothing can compare to the joy of a child who is learning about Jesus for the very first time.” When she isn’t teaching, Mrs. White enjoys kayaking and volunteering as a chef’s assistant at a local cooking school.
