Why I love teaching:
I love teaching (or being a facilitator of learning) because it is both a privilege and a blessing to play a part in helping students set and achieve learning goals. I love my job because it is an honor to help my students develop a love for learning so that they can become independent learners and so that they can fulfill God's plans for their lives.
Why I chose NCCS:
I chose NCCS because it is a Christ-centered school that tries to help each student succeed in all of the areas of their lives: academic, spiritually, and socially. The school motto really summarizes why I am excited to be a part of NCCS.
