Why Whitefield?
After moving back to Atlanta from Savannah, we were looking for a place to live and scoping out the schools of which there are many. We knew in our hearts that if our children were able to go to private school that it would be a Christian school. Although we know that faith starts at home, it is so refreshing to feel like your kids are getting encouraged to move in the right direction at school as well! We were in public school for a few years and God has led us back towards private Christian education. We were ready to return to the loving, family environment that Whitefield provides and feel blessed and honored to be part of such an awesome place!

What I love about teaching:
My work is fulfilling in so many ways. What I most enjoy seeing is the light bulbs come on in the students' eyes...when something clicks for them and they get excited and relaxed at the same time. The stress of confusion is gone and the sense of accomplishment is visible. That is an A+ day!
