Personal Statement
“Although my LeTourneau University experience is relatively brief when compared to the careers of many of the other professors here, it has been a wonderful eleven years so far and I look forward to many more. It is exciting for me to teach at an institution where my personal philosophy of education fits so closely with the mission and philosophy of the school. My heart and passion is to teach with “whole person learning” as the goal. I just love it when I see students begin to realize how the Scriptures impact every area of their lives and they get excited about understanding and applying God's Word. I have been blessed seeing students respond positively to this concept, both in the classroom and in the personal relationships that I have been privileged to make with my students.”
