How long have you taught at Forest Lake Academy
What do you teach at Forest Lake Academy
Why do you like teaching at FLA?
I graduated from FLA, and it brings me great joy to return to my alma mater.
How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at FLA?
It is important that our personal worldview is grounded in Christianity. If that happens it’s very easy to present that view in everything we do.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
When I was a student here at FLA, I had to take Geometry. Math has never been my favorite so when I entered the class for the first time my teacher Mr. James Lynn said something that changed my view of Education. He said to me that we were going to pass Geometry. Ten years later I stood in his doorway and he called me by name. I never forgot that experience. Having a relationship with students continues to be very important to me.
What sets FLA students apart from students in other schools?
I believe it’s their love for God, family and each other.
How do you accomplish the mission of FLA to instill in our students love and service for God, respect for self and others, intellectual growth and a Christ-like character in your role at FLA?
By living that example for them everyday.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
That they are part of a family and God loves them and so do I.
