Hello CTA supporters, My name is Anne Conway, and I teach kindergarten in a small, private school in southern Minnesota. Working in a Christian school and spreading my faith is the joy of my life. I have been married for thirty years, and am the mother of seven children. Teaching, raising my children, volunteering at my church, and enriching my faith life are the values I focus on. I enjoy working in the marriage preparation program at my church, teaching and directing Vacation Bible School in the summer, and attending Bible study for my own personal enrichment. I look forward to sharing my faith with you!
