Favorite aspect of teaching at Calvary: I enjoy helping students gain mastery of the material contained in the classes that I teach.
Favorite class to teach and why: I would describe all of the classes I presently teach as “favorites” since each one has distinct aspects or characteristics.
Originally from: A farm in Oklahoma
Favorite memory as a Calvary student: My favorite memories are the professors who gave extra help when needed and small classes where everyone could be involved in class discussion and activities.
How did past ministry/professional experience lead to your position at Calvary: Ten years of teaching mathematics to middle and high school students and serving as a high school principal gave me the desire to help train teachers. When Calvary started a program for secondary school teachers, I asked to join the faculty.
Ministry/Professional involvement outside of Calvary: From 2000-2008, I was a visiting professor for a summer M.A. program at Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania.
