On a professional note


Why Whitefield?
From my perspective, Christian education is the most effective vehicle in the formation of new generations, as it provides the necessary tools to develop in youth a sense of total commitment to others, responsibility, selflessness, loyalty and tolerance.

Christian education is a unique process by which both students and teachers acquire and develop knowledge, attitudes, values and practices that reflect the faith in Jesus Christ.

Why I love teaching:
I love teaching because it is an effective and proactive way to work towards a better world. I also love to learn, which I do every day with my students.
