“"I love the dedication and family atmosphere that collaborating with the other teachers and staff brings.”

What do you love about TCA?
I love the dedication and family atmosphere that collaborating with the other teachers and staff brings. We work together and help each other with ideas and draw on a wealth of experience from our collective group that makes our individual jobs easier.
How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at TCA? (Please provide some examples)
The Bible is the true and reliable Word of God. This is why in my teaching, I seek to start with what the Bible says and view the subjects I teach through this lens. For example, when I teach about dinosaurs, it will be from the standpoint that God created them on the sixth day with the other land animals. When I teach about allegiance to our country, it will be from the worldview that God is on the throne and is sovereign over all things, even the hearts of kings, so our hope is in Him.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
I have the benefit of being an alumni of TCA, from which I have received the teaching, love and pouring into from past teachers here. I believe the wonderful examples that were set for me enable me to pour into the lives of the students I teach. I love my students as if they were my own.
