Mary Ann Walden - that’s me. I’m a retired master level teacher of 33 years; 27 of which were in various multi-grade situations from 4-year olds to 10th grade, then six years as chair of a college education department training future Christian teachers. I have worked as a trainer and mentor of children and youth since I was seven years old! Yes, I started early, taught my youngest brother and sister to walk and talk; they called me, “Mama” because I was their primary caregiver.
Retired now, but I have a lifetime of experience to share and a deep desire to help young people grow in knowledge, ability, as individuals, and in their relationships with God the Father and their Lord Jesus Christ. I love the Lord and enjoy walking with Him, and hope to guide others to an enjoyable walk with Him also.
Thus, when the idea of developing materials for young people was presented to me I jumped at it! “Growing Me Webinars” are designed primarily for the child in grades 3-6; however, advanced younger children might enjoy and benefit from these webinars also. Young folks in grades 7 & 8 who are interested in the content of each course would definitely enjoy and benefit from the courses I will be developing also.
