Why do you enjoy teaching at SBU? "Several reasons - (1) It is my passion and calling; (2) I have always enjoyed working with students and, in the case of SBU, the very best students; (3) the camaraderie experienced with fellow faculty and staff members; (4) the opportunity to influence those who will serve Christ as teachers in a variety of settings; and, (5) my family calls Bolivar home and it is a great place to work and live.
