On a professional note

Why I love teaching:
First, I love teaching because of the opportunity to spend time with teenagers. I enjoy getting to share my understanding of Scripture and theology with them and in turn, getting to hear their take on various issues. Many of the relationships I have formed as a teacher have continued and changed into real friendships after graduation.

Why Whitefield:
I have several reasons for loving my job. First, I work with a fantastic faculty and staff. They have become close friends and trusted colleagues. Second, I love working with the students. They constantly challenge me and make me smile. Finally, I love getting to spend my working hours talking about subjects that I love and am passionate about teaching.

On a personal note
