“My driving force for my classroom and for my students is to ignite in them a true love of learning. I wish to help inspire in them a desire to be lifelong learners. My hope is that they would see in literature, from both Christian and non-Christian authors, a means to understand human nature– our struggles to make sense of ourselves, of others, and of our world. I want to help students “get out of themselves” and to look at situations from another’s perspective.”
