I love their high expectation for excellence and holding the scholars accountable. They teach more than academics, but also responsibility for everyday life. I also love that parent involvement is a priority at True Foundation.  

How do you teach Biblical worldview in your classroom?

I try to connect real-life experiences as I teach and show how the history of the Bible and the principles of Jesus is still relevant now. The world is changing, but the Word of God does not! I encourage students, as we work together, to find how every area of science relates to God.

I love the creative arts and try to incorporate them in my lessons depending on the topic or age group that I am working with. 

What have you seen in your students over the years that has touched your heart the most?

Their encouraging words to me verbally and in the form of letters or notes showing how much they appreciate all I do. Sometimes you question your impact as a teacher, and their words mean a lot.
