On a professional note

Why Whitefield:
Although there were several reasons I was drawn to Whitefield Academy as a place of employment in 2001, the most compelling one was the school's core values as a Christ-centered institution. I was especially attracted to Whitefield's unapologetic position of committing to excellence and embracing the critical thinking principles of education. As a Christ-centered institution, I believe we have a distinct advantage in cultivating a learning atmosphere that nurtures the level of giftedness that God has endowed in each of us as His creation.

Why do you love your job?
I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to help shape and mold the minds of our youth without having to compromise God's truth. It is a blessing to do the very thing that I am gifted to do and to partner with a community of Christians on behalf of God's most precious creation.

On a personal note

About my family:
My wife Monica and I have three children. I count it as a blessing to spend quality time with my family; along with Christ, they complete me.
