Who was the most influential teacher/coach/instructor when you were growing up?  What was it about him/her that impacted you? 

Mr. Patterson’s teaching is what inspired me to become a teacher.  He was an talented raconteur whose knowledge and love of history was deep.  Every day he was able to connect incidents of the past to today’s problems.

What is your fondest Mount Pisgah memory?

In January of 2013 I was able to accompany a group of students on an amazing tour of Italy. Seeing so many historical sites for the first time with a group of students seeing them for the first time was inspiring and energizing. 

Why do you teach or work at a school?

I was in high school when I realized that I was called to be a history teacher. It is a career that is different every minute of every day.
