Why I love my job:
I love my job because each day I have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy with my students. What an awesome privilege it is to be able to leave a legacy of knowledge, salvation and conviction for my students!
Why I chose NCCS:
I chose NCCS because I value the fluidity between the teachings of school, church and home. I am encouraged by knowing that the things that I teach my students academically and spiritually are reinforced at church and home.
