On a professional note


Why Whitefield:
My family’s priority and focus is on Jesus Christ, which led us to choose Whitefield for our boys’ education. We love everything about Whitefield, from it being Christ-centered to putting others ahead of self, to the close community feeling among the families. When I decided to start teaching again, I knew there was nowhere else that I wanted to teach!

Why I love teaching:
I believe that God gives each of us gifts and talents. God blessed me with a love of art. As an art teacher, I love seeing my students use their individual gifts to grow as artists, get excited about the techniques they are learning, and develop a love and appreciation for viewing and creating art.
