Associate Professor of Education
School of Education
One of the unique characteristics of my students at CCU is that nearly all of them regard teaching as their calling. So, when they ask how they might share their faith in a public school setting, I ask them to consider the model that Christ Himself provided. How did He respond to those in need, the unlovable, and the discouraged? As they reflect on a variety of educational issues I ask my students to evaluate them from both a professional as well as a Christian perspective. More >
