The Eastern Christian tagline is “Engaging. Nurturing. Transforming.” How do you accomplish this in your role at EC?
“I try to make my lessons engaging so that students will be excited about learning the material, and will be able to internalize it. I also see the role of teachers here to be a part of the spiritual upbringing of each student. For this reason, I know that I’m not only teaching my content, but am also nurturing a growing mind for Christ’s purpose. Thirdly, I make it my goal each semester to transform students’ perceptions of math. Many come in disliking math, having very negative and even fearful feelings towards it. I try to make it a less scary subject for them.”
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
“I want my students to have positive perceptions about math and be able to use it in their daily lives. Moreover, I also want students to be able to know the love of Christ through me. I am just an instrument to be used by Him.”
