On a professional note

Why Whitefield?
I was drawn to Whitefield when I witnessed the powerful connection between faith and instruction. The guidance of Christian principles in the classroom ensures students have purpose beyond themselves and perpetuates encouragement, hope, and grace. The love of God can transform the way we interact and learn – creating deeper implications and eternal values that will lead to success both in the classroom and beyond.

What I love about teaching:
I love teaching because I find great joy in the ability to connect and embrace the learning experience and educational journey with students. Exploring novels, poetry, short stories, and ideas collectively makes learning interactive and enjoyable. Facilitating deeper understandings and thought-provoking conversations creates an active and engaging classroom. My goal is to model kindness, respect, and the love of learning.
