Why I love teaching at Taylor:

I firmly believe that Taylor offers great advantages for students. I love being able to teach small classes, know my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and help them become well-rounded professionals. I love watching them grow and mature in both their knowledge of global business as well as their faith. I love hearing from them later in life as they navigate the “real world.” I love an environment that challenges me to live out my faith as a professional. And I enjoy working in a community with like-minded people doing the same things. 

Advice to incoming students:

Use the next four years wisely. Learn all you can about as much as you can, and then use it for the Kingdom.
