Why I love teaching at Taylor:
I enjoy teaching at Taylor because Taylor is my alma mater and it embodies the vision, values, and community I seek.
Advice to incoming students:
We teachers and students are in this venture together. Only our best work will uncover our passion and enable our authentic internal motivation to emerge, mature and inspire life-long service to God and humanity in our vocations and relationships. We will be early rather than late, prepared rather than slacking, prayerful rather than boastful, humble, obedient, and caring, open, inclusive, engaged and grateful.
