What do you love about Redwood Christian Schools?
The community of people! We have amazing students and families at RCS, as well as an incredible faculty, staff and administration
Why do you like teaching at RCS?
I get the chance to do what I love in the fields of study that I love and am trained in. The Lord brought me to Redwood suddenly and unexpectedly. My longtime friendship with Ben Warner was my initial contact with RCS, then life circumstance lead to me beginning my teaching position.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to shape the overall experience of students at RCS?
I have been around the church, several ministries, and all over the world serving and partnering with different ministries, churches and missions. The Lord is allowing me to use these experiences in order to help train our students to be prepared for life and ministry after RCS.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
RCS students are young men and women of great character. They understand that their identity is more than just what others think about them. Our students strive to be growing and learning as they prepare for life after RCS.
The RCS tagline is “the education you TRUST for the children you LOVE.” How do you accomplish this in your role at RCS?
My role, first and foremost, is to love our kids. My hope is that every student that walks into my classroom knows they are deeply cared for. By building this kind of relationship I am able to challenge the students to grow in their understanding of the curriculum.
What do you want students to gain from having known you?
I hope students see in my life and hear from me that there is nothing more important in life than knowing God. If they break everything down the essential necessities of life, knowing God is the most important priority.
What is your favorite verse?
Philippians 3:12 “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.”
