What do you love about LCS?
I love the community we have: staff that is great to work with, parents who care about their student’s education, and students who want to learn and grow.
Why do you like teaching at LCS?
There are several reasons I like teaching at LCS. I can pray with my students for their physical, spiritual, and mental needs. I can teach from a faith perspective so that students can see God in the math concepts, apply a Christian worldview when analyzing data, and to persevere and work hard since all they do is to glorify God. Lastly, I can develop a mentoring relationship with my students that often extends into their college career.
What motivated you to become a teacher at LCS?
My children attended LCS and I wanted to use my engineering experience to show opportunities that are available if students are willing to challenge themselves.
How do you teach a biblical worldview?
Everything I do is based on a biblical worldview. We can analyze and model His creation through science and mathematics. This includes working for the Lord in all I do. In AP statistics, we analyze data from a Christian viewpoint. In Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus, we use functions to model how God’s world works.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
My unique experience is my previous engineering career. I am able to demonstrate where math is used. I also was in a military home so I moved frequently. This helps me understand the new students at LCS.
What sets LCS students apart from students in other schools?
LCS students are friendly and willing to help new students and teachers.
How do you teach to the mission of LCS?
I am preparing students to use their God-given abilities to honor Him in all they do.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I want students to know that God has given them their abilities, and to seek God for all things: college, career, family and friends. I also want students to enjoy whatever they do. I love my job and my students and they know it.
