Why Whitefield:
Teaching at Whitefield Academy has been one of the biggest blessings in my life! When I started teaching at Whitefield, my oldest daughter was here in the ninth grade, and I could see how Ashley’s life was being affected by the amazing teachers with whom she came in contact and I wanted to be part of the amazing Christian education that Whitefield offered. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to help children learn about and understand God’s role in their lives. I love teaching because I get to see the precious faces of the PreK-4 children as they learn about life (and their alphabet and numbers)!
