On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
I'm excited to teach at school that is authentically pursuing Christ in all areas, and a school that invests in students first and foremost as children of God.

Why I love my job:
I love any opportunity to connect with and learn more about other people, which is part of why I enjoy teaching a foreign language and is also why I'm excited to connect with prospective families through Admissions. I love getting to know the whole story of a person- their likes, dislikes, passions, dreams. These beautiful and sometimes messy stories show us more of God's creativity, and by working in a school, I truly feel like each day is an invitation to learn more about our Creator.
