I will also be teaching Old Testament Overview. I love teaching the Bible and seeing people’s eyes open to the beauty of God’s word. I’ve had the opportunity to lead at least 4 different Bible study groups through a Bible overview. I was deeply impacted in my own faith by seeing the big picture of God’s unending love for his people through a Bible overview and love sharing it with others. I look forward to engaging the 7th graders in tracing the storyline of the Old Testament.
Tell us a little about your family:
I’ve been married to Glenn since 2008, and we have 2 sons.
What do you enjoy about Classical education?
I love the goal of classical education – to cultivate the good, the true, and the beautiful in a student’s life. I love that it helps a student to cultivate proper loves – to love the right things rightly. I love that classical education helps to educate the whole student – mind, body, and soul – so that they can become a fully flourishing person. I love that classical education works with the natural way God has made students at every stage to help them more naturally learn and grow.
Why are you interested in teaching in at Austin Classical School? What do you love about students in the grade you’re teaching?
I love helping ACS have wise and good processes in place behind the scenes so that we can better accomplish the mission of ACS. I love helping to improve and make things better year by year.
What do you hope your students will learn from you this year?
I hope my students will see the beauty of God’s love for his people and how the gospel changes everything in our life. As they read God’s word, I hope they rightly see God, his kingdom, and how he has made the world and therefore understand more of their own story. Ultimately, I hope they see the person of Jesus through his life, death, and resurrection as their first love and ultimate joy.
