On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
Whitefield's approach to developing students through a Christ-centered, family-focused community excites me. I am eager to join in service with this gifted group of educators developing academic, experiential, faith-based programs that speak to the heart of the school's mission.

Why I love my job:
As a called educator, I find encouragement in Galatians 6:9, which says, "let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Every day is an opportunity for me to work with God's children, to learn with and from my peers and colleagues, to humbly support students, faculty, and parents alike, and to commit myself to serving those in need.
