Why Whitefield:
I can’t think of a reason why not! I was happily teaching at another Christian school in the Atlanta area when a friend called to ask if I would visit the Whitefield campus. The reason: Whitefield was launching a Lower School the next academic year. I really wasn’t interested at the time, but because of our friendship, I agreed to at least visit the campus. The rest is history, as they say. I taught first grade that inaugural year and became principal of the Lower School in 2005.
