What do you love most about HCS?

I love the ice machine in the teacher’s lounge. Just kidding, it’s so much more than that. I love the community of families. When you look at the disciples and the growth of the early church, they set a great example of how to love one another and care for each others’ needs. Our community, at its best, is similar- whether it is sickness, financial struggle, academic challenges, or something else, we rally to help each other.

 

Why do you like teaching at HCS?

I have not heard of many professions where the employees love their job, their boss(es), and their clients. I get the opportunity to teach eager, witty, curious minds, with my best friends, under a unified leadership of our administration. 

 

What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.

Intentional- our teachers are intentional with their lessons and their conversations with their students. Our parents are intentionally a team with our school in the aim of students’ growth toward being more like Jesus. Our students are intentional about growing as problem solvers to go out and share the gospel with the world.

 

How do you integrate faith and learning at HCS?

In every subject. In the way we communicate and set expectations for our students- with grace and accountability. 

 

What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?

As a previous college admissions counselor I love to integrate any opportunity to motivate students towards higher learning and traveling abroad. As a previous church staff member, I love to share about the benefits of living life in community and attending weekly services at a local church.

 

What sets HCS students apart from other students?

Maturity, growth, and a strong foundation of who Jesus is when they leave our campus.
