What do you like to do in your free time? I love going to a small town, Athens, Georgia, just east of Atlanta to experience the life of a Bulldog.
What is something most people don't know about you? I grew up in Garden City, Georgia, which is near Savannah, Georgia.
What are you passionate about? I am passionate about UGA and being a part of eternity coming to people's hearts.
Why do you choose to teach at BL? Honestly, the choice has never been mine. God has directed my steps to be at Ben Lippen.
What is your teaching style? Randomly seeking to follow the lead of another - the Holy Spirit.
What is your favorite part of your school day? When God shows up and does something that we can't manufacture....and it lasts.
What do you love most about teaching your students? Seeing the light go on!
