Why I love teaching at Taylor:

I love Taylor’s mission to prepare servant leaders to minister Christ’s redemptive love and truth to a world in need, and I have some of the brightest, hardest-working students in the nation.

Advice to incoming students:

Although studies aren’t the only reason you are in college, it’s a pretty important part that should be a main focus.


Exercising (biking in particular), reading, watching movies
