My life and actions “teach” at FLA – since May 2012

What do you teach at Forest Lake Academy
Honesty, integrity, forgiveness, joy!

Why do you like teaching at FLA?
It’s a great mission field.

How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at FLA?
Living it… accepting others no matter how different they are.

What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
I interact with the students primarily outside of the classroom. BUT one of the things I work hard at is learning their names. They get a kick out of me calling out their name the first day of school.

What sets FLA students apart from students in other schools?
They are a resilient and compassionate group of young people. Deep down, they love Jesus, and they are not afraid to show it when it is appropriate to share it.

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?
Giving unconditional love to the students I meet while holding them accountable for the program we set out for them.

What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
Jesus is your friend, too.
