What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I teach Math 6 and Algebra I.
What do you love about your role(s) at RCS?
As a teacher, I love the family-like environment of support and love for each other among the faculty. As a parent, I know that my kids are being fed both spiritually and academically each day in a loving safe environment.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
Although many traits take a lifetime to perfect, I see a higher level of compassion and empathy in our kids that come from being taught by the example of Christ throughout their formative years.
How do you inspire your students?
I try to constantly help kids see and plan beyond their immediate future. I want kids thinking and planning for years from now instead of just tomorrow. I try to teach and show them the value of planning and thinking about the future.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I want them shooting higher and dreaming bigger when they leave my classroom than when they entered.
What is your favorite verse?
Proverbs 24:3 “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”
