On a professional note

Why Whitefield?
I was attracted to Whitefield Academy because of the mission and vision of the school as well as the reputation of a strong, Christ-centered school and excellent academic achievement. I'm excited to work alongside other brothers and sisters in Christ as we help educate and inspire our students in a positive and challenging academic environment.

What I love about teaching:
One of the gifts God has given me is the ability to explain scientific topics in a fun and interesting way. I also love the special relationships that are created in the classroom with my students. I am not only educating my students about science, but about Christ, life, laughter, and experiences. I wish to inspire students and to help show them their cognitive abilities, talents, and God-given gifts so that they can have bigger dreams for themselves.
