On a professional note

Why Whitefield:
I chose Whitefield Academy because I knew God was directing me here. I could feel the presence of God through the kindness of all the faculty. It is a blessing to share my knowledge in the classroom, but more importantly my faith in Jesus Christ.

Why I love my job:
I have always loved teaching and working in a school environment. Since my mother worked at school my whole life, I feel like I have literally grown up at school. One of my favorite memories was getting all the leftover teacher supplies and playing school at home!

Some of my favorite moments in teaching is watching children have that “ah ha” moment and make content connections with something in their life.

On a personal note

My family:
My husband and I have three beautiful children.
