What Do You Love About Teaching?

A few of the things that I love about teaching at Point University are the opportunity it provides to live out my calling in the classroom, to integrate the tenets of the Christian faith in my teaching, and to lovingly nurture students’ spiritual growth and development. I also love working within a community where we all can share in the joy of knowing and serving a risen Savior.
