On a professional note


Why Whitefield?
Whitefield's reputation as a Christ-centered, higher level learning school attracted my family initially. We attended an Open House in January and fell in love with Whitefield! We were moved by the outpouring of love and genuine concern for the welfare of not only our own children, but all children that attend Whitefield. I left the Open House that day and told my husband that this was an environment of which I wanted to be a part. I am humbled and blessed that God has allowed me the opportunity to be a part of the Whitefield family.

What I love about teaching:
I love teaching because I love helping children reach their full potential. I want to share God's love and grace with little ones to help them grow academically and spiritually.
