  • WHY I AM TEACHING AT THE KING’S SCHOOL
    • "I believe it is vitally important for children to be raised as spiritual and physical beings. Only through establishing a relationship with Christ Jesus can people hope to develop a purposeful and meaningful life. Working at The King’s School enables me to help lay a Christian foundation in the lives of students upon which true knowledge and understanding can be built."
