Jill Laningham

Hello, my name is Jill Laningham and I am thrilled to be returning to Legacy for my third year. I was born and raised in Texas but have lived here for 16 years and have been married for 17. I am excited about the focus Legacy Academy has for our 21st century learners. My undergraduate degree is in Human Resource Management and my Master’s is in Education. I have taught kindergarten through sixth grade. I am passionate about teaching the younger grades and sharing my enthusiasm of learning. Teaching allows me to fulfill my passion for igniting a spark in a child and fostering a love for continued learning.

Favorite Quote: "One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. 
""Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.""

He whispered, ""My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.""

Activities & Hobbies: I love the change of season, majestic mountains, and the variety of fitness opportunities available in Colorado. I especially enjoy spending time with my family outdoors hiking and riding ATV’s. When I need time to relax and evoke my creative side I scrapbook. I also enjoy going to the movies with my friends.
