What brought you to New Hope:  I was in search of a new teaching position. My desire was to remain teaching at a Christian school, and the Lord blessed me once again with the opportunity to keep doing what I love.

How does your faith impact your work with the students of New Hope:  Teaching at a Christian school is such an honor and blessing.  It is amazing to be doing the Lord’s work with co-workers, families, and students who believe in Jesus.  To be in a place where people look to Jesus first is great!
