Why do you love teaching or working at Mount Pisgah?
After working as a software engineer in the defense and aerospace industry for over 10 years, I realized my passion is people. Connecting, relating and serving others is what excites me most. Although I've always found myself teaching and mentoring in some capacity over the years, it is now that I've discovered teaching is part of my purpose. I look forward to using my technology background to inspire and engage students into a love of computer science and STEM.
Who was the most influential teacher/coach/instructor when you were growing up? What was it about him/her that impacted you?
Dr. Adriel Johnson was singlehandedly my biggest supporter, encourager, and harsh critical adviser that shaped my college success. He worked tirelessly to push his students and mentees to achieve more than they ever imagined. Not just for our own success, but to in turn mentor students behind us and in our communities. I literally cannot imagine my academic success and drive without his mentorship. His legacy lives on in the life of each student he touched.
