The Biggest Advantage to Teaching at an Independent School:

What I enjoy about working at Harrisburg Academy is that the sky is the limit in educating students.  We are very fortunate at the Academy to have the ability to go on many field trips to enhance our studies in the classroom.  Our students at the Academy inspire us to be the best we can be as teachers, who inspire, create, and love to teach!


A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

I have had many memorable moments at the Academy, but the one that stands out the most for me is when my daughter, who was in Junior Kindergarten at the time, was walking down the hall to her class and said, "I just love my school."  My daughter is considered a “Legacy student” at Harrisburg Academy since she began school as a Junior Kindergarten student.  She has now successfully started college, and we owe her success to Harrisburg Academy. 


My Favorite Book:

Most of the books I read these days revolve around what the students are reading.  I have enjoyed many books, but probably my favorite book has been "Capture the Flag" by Kate Messner.  To indulge my spiritual side, my favorite book is "Heaven is for Real" by Todd Burpo.
