What do you love most about HCS?
I love how kind everyone is at HCS. There is a genuine overall sense of kindness here.
Why do you like teaching at HCS?
There are many reasons that I enjoy teaching at HCS. The first reason is the amazing support I feel from my colleagues and the administration. The second reason is that I get to teach about God. I love teaching children about God’s love for them. It fills me up to see my students growing closer to God.
What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.
Kindness. People here care. We care about our students. We care about our students’ families and we care about each other. Because we are a Christian school, we are able to teach our children about the importance of loving their neighbor as they love themselves. Our teachers are role models of this Christian principal at HCS.
How do you integrate faith and learning at HCS?
I love finding opportunities to integrate my Christian faith into the multiple subjects I teach everyday. Currently we are learning about how our country was founded and why. Our discussions led us to the freedom to worship. It was enlightening for my students to realize that our forefathers fought for the freedom to worship our Heavenly Father.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
I was not raised as a Christian. It was a choice I made as an adult. I always tell my students how extremely blessed they are that they are being raised with the Lord. I love telling them that God loves them so much that he will never leave them and he will always forgive them for their trespasses. We often talk about the importance of talking to God and building a personal relationship with him.
What sets HCS students apart from other students?
I believe HCS students have an amazing support system. They have teachers who pray for them, parents who work with them and our Lord who loves them more than we can imagine.
