On a professional note

Why Whitefield:
I first heard about Whitefield from several friends who either had children here or had family members with children here. They all thought that Whitefield would be an ideal place for my youngest daughter. I was immediately attracted by the school’s explicitly Christ-centered approach to life and learning and its high academic standards. The atmosphere reminded me of the school that I attended when I was young. I am thrilled to be able to provide my daughter that same kind of experience here at Whitefield.

Why I love my job:
Teaching has allowed me to meet many teachers and parents associated with the school. I have been impressed with the caliber of people I have met and have loved every one of them. I have always enjoyed being around children and helping them to learn. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher.

On a personal note

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