- College of Education University of Oregon (1975)
Miss Carpentier graduated from the University of Oregon College of Education with a Bachelor of Science degree. Teaching thirty-four years in public and private Christian school settings has afforded her valuable experience working with culturally and socioeconomically diverse students. Each school year has presented opportunities to work with different ability levels, including many children with clinically diagnosed learning challenges. For Miss Carpentier, moving from public education to private Christian education has brought the most important and fulfilling aspect of teaching, the freedom of sharing Jesus Christ with her students.
Her life verse, shared by a beloved pastor when she was a young girl, is Romans 1:16.
