What/Who inspired you to take up teaching? 

Alongside some great teachers who poured into my life as a musician, I would say that Jesus’ call for us to make disciples includes not only the preaching of the gospel for the lost, but also the sharing of the gifts God has given to us. He has given me

  Why did you choose to teach at TCS? 

I choose to teach at TCS because it is an excellent ministry which produces good fruits. Working at TCS is a great opportunity to impact the younger generation and draw them closer to God by developing the gift of music to bring Him glory.

How are faith and learning integrated at TCS? 

Faith is the foundation of everything done at TCS. As a choir teacher, I can work with songs that glorify God.  

 In what ways do you want to prepare students for a life beyond TCS? 

I would like my students to see that our ‘worship’ goes beyond the musical aspect of singing, but it manifests in our daily walk through our relationship with God.  

  What would you tell families to encourage them to send their children at TCS? 

TCS is a Christ-centered school where the care for students’ lives goes beyond a ‘regular’ school. It is a place where the seed of God’s word is planted and watered with much prayer and dedication.
