Why did you come to work at PTCS?

God made a way for me while I was still teaching on the other side of the world. Only He, in His divinity, could give me a place to land before I even knew I needed one.

How has working here changed you?

These people have a heart for service that is unparalleled. I'm honored to call them my colleagues and journey together on the path before us.

What are your favorite development moments?

I love capturing an experience - whether it's a school event, classroom learning, or sharing what God is doing at PTCS with others on a larger scale!


The famous impressionist, Vincent Van Gogh, once sketched a picture of the bright Paris moon on a letter to his brother, Theo. He wrote that it was too beautiful not to be shared. He was compelled to share something wonderful when he encountered it. In a similar vein, I feel that the families, students, staff, teachers, and history of PTCS are too beautiful not to be shared.
