On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
Education should reflect Christ’s pre-eminence in all things. Whitefield works hard to accomplish this and to foster a Biblical worldview throughout its community. I was personally drawn here through the work and character of some specific faculty members. Exhibiting integrity, discipline, and holiness before God, I had a good look at the kind of leaders that Whitefield employs.

Why I love my job:
I just love telling people about God, His Son, His Word, and all the rest. Moreover, young people have a heightened inquisitiveness that can lead to honest and fruitful discussions about the nature of God and His creation. Christian education grants the potential for such discussions no matter the subject of class. The languages, arts, and sciences all testify to the wisdom of God.
