Why Whitefield:
Our family has been a part of the Whitefield community since 2002. It is a joy to drive on campus each day knowing I am unique and a part of the Whitefield family and community. I love being a part of a school that is committed to children growing in their passion for learning while simultaneously growing in their Christian faith.

Why I love teaching:
After 14 years as a stay-at-home mom, it is a true joy to be back in a classroom environment! It is extremely rewarding to be part of this incredible staff of Christian educators. I am thrilled to be back teaching children science - it lights a spark in them for learning more about God as our creator. Having students in the lab on a weekly basis gives them further opportunities to get hands-on experience in the world of scientific study from a biblical worldview!
