Q: What is the most rewarding aspect of my teaching at Knox?


A: What I love most about teaching at Knox, and thus making it the most rewarding part of what I do, is getting to interact with the students. I am almost constantly amazed and blessed at the love they have for our Savior and the humility they show towards the salvation He has freely given to us. As Paul wrote in Romans 1:12, it is the “mutual encouragement” that happens in the classroom that makes teaching at Knox so exhilarating and meaningful. I sincerely leave the classes feeling that I was the one who was blessed.
