What is your fondest Pisgah memory?
In my time at Mount Pisgah, I have cataloged tons of great memories and special moments. Two of my very favorites are when my son and daughter graduated from Pisgah. The enormous sense of joy and love I felt as a parent was closely rivaled by the overwhelming sense of accomplishment I felt as an educator. It was a true gift to have been part of their development and growth serving alongside the amazing Pisgah faculty.
Why do you teach or work at a school?
I chose teaching because I love and enjoy people and building relationships. I especially love middle and high school students who need spiritual and emotional support as they find their way in this world.
What is your teaching philosophy?
I don’t approach teaching as a job. I view my life at Pisgah as a ministry, a gift and an opportunity to help each student reach his or her potential. My greatest desire is for students to find confidence in who they are and passion and engagement in their interests and gifts. Each day I set out to provide and reside in a community of faith, trust and laughter.
