"Some of my greatest joys in life are the opportunities God has given me to facilitate growth in others. As a teacher, I see myself not as a conveyer of wisdom or an expert in content, but as a mentor and coach. I love meeting my students where they are and walking alongside them on their educational and personal journeys, encouraging and challenging them along the way. My hope is to empower them to embrace their identity in Christ and take ownership of their individual spiritual and educational growth."
