Why did you come to teach at PTCS?

I came to teach at PTCS because the Father called me, through the witness account and prayers of the PTCS staff and the Chapel Service participations, having thereby acknowledged that the LORD was sending me to continue ministering the Gospel, to wax stronger in His way, and teach the children and all who He places along this path of Life, in Christ.

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

Relative to teaching, I enjoy most that each person, learning or teaching, may ultimately be encouraged to reach their God-given potential.

What are your favorite moments with students?

My favorite moments with students are whence: (1). We all have the "Aha!" moment, or the moment when we all have fully understood the grand principle being taught, (2). We are rejoicing and enjoying the discoveries of Holy Scripture, stories, mealtime, music, math, science, or any good subject, and (3). When they, the students, can teach what I have taught them.
