When I graduated from college, I was determined to not be a high school English teacher. I wanted to do more than be confined to a classroom, and I definitely did not want to interact with adolescents who thought they knew everything already. But as time passed, the Lord made it clear to me where I was supposed to be and what I was supposed to be doing. Having attended Christian schools, I know the importance of establishing a foundation in a biblical worldview and of equipping students with the skills to articulate their beliefs. Imparting knowledge about language and literature is important, but enabling my students to critically analyze and evaluate this knowledge is even more significant. From the moment I began teaching, I realized that this was what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing.
Being part of the faculty at Libertas allows me to teach in a manner that resonates with my calling to Christian education. As an English and Rhetoric teacher, my goal is to help students not only obtain the skills to discern and decipher truth, but also to articulate and assert that truth. Through the Libertas community, students are empowered to become instruments of light in a darkened world. I am blessed with the privilege and honor of being part of God’s work at this school.
