What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I teach 8th grade Bible and English as well as 12th grade AP Literature.
What do you love about Redwood Christian Schools?
I love that the name of Jesus Christ is preeminent in all of the components of an RCS education.
What motivated you to serve at Redwood Christian?
I am motivated to serve at RCS solely out of a desire to please Jesus with my life.
What do you feel is the significance of your role at RCS?
I enjoy sharing the Truth of God’s Creation and God Himself through the discipline of English and Language studies. I had been teaching in a Christian School prior to moving to Dublin. My children were students at RCS, and I felt the call to return to a teaching position where my children attended.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to shape the overall experience of students at RCS?
I believe that I am an engaging storyteller, and can bring literary elements to life in the classroom.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
RCS students desire to be here, in our classrooms, learning about their world.
The RCS tagline is “the education you TRUST for the children you LOVE.” How do you accomplish this in your role at RCS?
I am careful to introduce my students to material in ways I would desire my children to have been introduced. Even difficult or contrary ideas have a place in discussion when bounded by the Word of God.
What do you want students to gain from having known you?
I would hope that they have learned to question sources and purposes, and to seek for deeper meaning in the ideas they encounter.
What is your favorite verse?
John 3:19-21 ESV “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
