“As a teacher of juniors and seniors, most of them in my college classes, I am driven to make sure they will be prepared to face the academic challenges before them in college or the challenges of succeeding in the workplace if they are not going to college right away. Beyond the classroom, I strive to let my students know that they are loved and cared about. My hope is that I communicate that I love them because Jesus demonstrated His love for me.”
