Why Whitefield:
I chose Whitefield before Whitefield chose me. My husband and I realized the best investment we could make would be in our children’s education. Therefore, we decided private Christian education would be the best foundation. Whitefield would provide a place where our children could grow academically and spiritually. Years later, I took a new career path as the Lord called me to teaching. As I debated where I would teach, the Lord made it perfectly clear. If I chose Christian education for my children, why would I not choose the same environment to teach? I can honestly say I love my job. Every day I get up and look forward to my work day - a place where I can share my love of history along with my love of the Lord.
