Teaching Statement of Purpose

Students,

I am here to encourage you in your search for truth or help you begin it;
To refine your capabilities of discernment and expression;
And to challenge your understanding with good-faith information and arguments
presented in a careful, loving way.

You are here to humble me with your talent, strength, and potential;
To refine my capabilities of discernment and expression;
To challenge my understanding with your honest questions
and diverse life experiences;

And to remind me that teaching is a personal, individual,
relational and sacrificial act for the glory of God.
