Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

Attending a Christian university for my undergraduate work made a huge impact on my growth as a young Christian. When I made the decision to move from teaching in the K-12 arena to higher education, I only considered Christian universities. Taylor was an excellent fit for me as it balanced an excellent academic preparation with a meaningful spiritual preparation. I enjoy teaching at Taylor because it challenges me personally while allowing me to work with outstanding students.
