How Your Program Is Unique Here:
We view all literature through a Christian perspective. This worldview illuminates the text in a different light than even perhaps it was intentionally written, but as Christians we cannot view a text with any other lens.
I have been a baptized Christian since infancy. Raised in a Christian home, I attended a Christian day school and college, and have spent all but one year serving in parochial schools.
Favorite Bible Verse and Why:
Philippians 1:9-11. I include this in every syllabi to remind my students that while they are acquiring knowledge I am hoping they are also growing in their judgment.
High School Teacher and Coach.
What You Enjoy Most About Teaching at Crown:
I enjoy teaching students who come from a myriad of geographical locations, cultures, and backgrounds, yet each are unified in their desire to learn and growth in their relationship with Christ.
How You Define “Academic Excellence”:
Academic excellence is a campus culture where professors and students work collaboratively to build relationship, promote learning, explore relevant curriculum, and exceed expectations.
What Students Say About Your Classes:
I hope they say that they are daily questioned, challenged, and prepared all the while enjoying the experience.
From A Career Standpoint, What Students Will Be Prepared To Do With A Degree From Your Program:
In my areas I hope they are more comfortable speaking in public forums, own a stronger command of their communication, and enjoy analyzing a text.
What You Would Say to Parents of Prospective Students About Having Their Son/Daughter at Crown:
My daughter is a transfer to Crown and she is thrilled to return to a campus which professes Christ and His work of salvation!
