What I love most about MPCS: I love I am able to work and grow as a professional in a Christ-centered environment. The joy of watching our students grow and begin to recognize their God-given talents and abilities is a blessing that is hard to describe.
What I love about my role at the school: I love investing in students, parents, and teachers. We are called to do life together. MPCS offers the opportunity for us to do just that as we educate our MPCS students.
My hope for MPCS: I pray that MPCS will remain committed to our mission of pointing students to Christ - to honor God, love others, and walk in Truth. As we do that, I pray we provide the best quality education by meeting students where they are and helping them grow and develop into the men and women God has created them to be. I pray our students leave us ready and prepared to move into whatever profession they feel led to pursue.
