I was saved in December of 1981 and two years later visited New England Baptist Church. I was baptized and joined the church after attending only a few times. I have been a member here ever since.
In 1984 the church began New England Baptist Theological Institute. I majored in education and attended classes taught by principals, teachers, and administrators of Christian schools. I received an excellent education as the focus was on the practical aspects of Christian education. I graduated in 1988, and in 1990 left my job of 14 years to heed God’s call to teaching at the Academy. One year later, I also assumed the responsibility of Administrator of the Theological Institute.
Over the past 22 years, I have taught grades 5-12, but my main duties have been in the junior and senior high. I have taught all subjects except science and was Junior High homeroom teacher for 16 years. I also have coached basketball and soccer.
Recently the Lord opened up the opportunity for me to be the Academy administrator. I am excited about this new challenge as God is stretching me and growing my faith. I have been working with teenagers since 1984 and have a love and desire for helping them to grow both spiritually and academically.
Teaching is my passion and ‘I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry‘ (I Tim. 1:12).
