Why Whitefield:
I love that Whitefield’s goal is to bring out the best in every student, regardless of their interests and talent. This mission to help students grow in their Biblical worldview of all subject areas will produce students who can affect the world for Christ.

Why I love teaching:
I love seeing students grow. Our current world teaches us that we can have what we want very quickly. The only way to affect our culture for Christ is to engage it, and that takes believers who can communicate. When students see that good writing and careful reading is hard work, I love inspiring them to push harder. My success is their success.
