I graduated from Pensacola Christian College with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. This is my twentieth year of teaching and my ninth year at Hillside Christian Academy. My philosophy of education and purpose for teaching at Hillside Christian Academy is to lead the students to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Afterward, it is to equip them with the necessary tools to effectively serve Jesus in the world; a solid and applicable knowledge of scripture, a solid academic foundation, and a strong moral character. It is truly rewarding to see each child develop as a unique individual. Although I rarely see the end product of my teaching, I know I have contributed somewhat to the laying of the foundation of their lives. On the rare occasion when a former student does return for a visit, or I bump into a former student’s parent, and they tell me how their child is doing, Galatians 6:9 becomes more real than ever, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
