Why I teach at CPLS: I have a passion for classical christian education and the arts. As a 2001 graduate from CPLS, I feel I had a jumpstart in life because of the excellent education I received here, and I love that I have the opportunity to be a part of that in future generations. There’s just something special about Cair Paravel, and I love seeing my students’ faces light up with new learning and accomplishment.

Personal Testimony: I am so thankful to have grown up in the church and to have been in a family where God and the Bible were central. My dad taught me to memorize scripture from a very young age, and those are the verses that still stick with me best. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior as a small child, and really made my faith my own as a teenager in the aftermath of a life-altering car accident and related injuries. began to see that God is good no matter my circumstances, He is constant. I am so grateful for the faith instilled in me as a child, and thankful for the opportunity and freedom to share my faith with others.
