B.A., English Literature, Georgia College
Why did you become a teacher?
I am a teacher today because I was inspired by several wonderful male teachers at my high school alma mater First Presbyterian Day School of Macon. They truly prepared me for college, and to this day, I thank those fine teachers for genuinely caring about my future.
Who was the most influential teacher you had?
I had a government and economics teacher in high school who truly poured everything into his students. Apart from sound lesson plans and enjoyable classes, he consistently pursued us and pushed us to be better men and women. He prayed for us daily and led a Bible study for the boys before school. He was present at several sporting events each week. He sang the loudest and lifted his hands the highest in our school chapel services. His mantra was Proverbs 27:17, As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. And he did sharpen us.
