She began praying for France, and other francophone people, when she was 8 years old. Mrs. Hash’s schooling choices were made with that in mind. She has been blessed with the opportunity to trust God with every aspect of her life and thrilled to watch how He has fulfilled her heart’s desires and unfolded His plan for her life. Mrs. Hash received her K-12 French and 4-12 English Teaching Certification from Central Washington University, as well as receiving Internationale Baccalaureate Certification for the Humanities and French. For the last 20 years, she has been able to teach in both public and private schools, including in France where she lived and finished her French degree at the University of Aix Provence Marseille in Avignon, and provided occasional simultaneous interpretation services for an international ministry based here in Gig Harbor. Mrs. Hash enjoys music, reading, traveling, and spending time with her family. Her daughter attends Hosanna, and she is blessed to be able to teach here and be a part of the Hosanna Family. She and her family attend Harborview Fellowship, where she and her husband Bill are involved in several ministries. It is her prayer that her students, and all with whom she is blessed to interact with, begin to know God more as their roots grow down deep into His love, and as they grow stronger that they begin to understand how wide, how high, and how deep His love truly is (Eph. 3:14-20).
