My favorite part about teaching at Johnson is: Building relationships with the students and watching them grow and mature in Christ.

In my classes, students can expect: To receive tools and resources to help them be successful in college and in life.

My best advice to a new student in my program is: To develop organizational and time management skills to assist them now and in their future career.

Because of my influence, I most want my students to become: People who are kind and compassionate and who care for others more than themselves.

The myth-busting truth about my discipline I most want people to understand is: Test scores do not always indicate intelligence.

A quote that influences how I live is: “The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
