Tell us about your favorite memory from your time teaching at Holy Cross School?
My favorite recent memory is watching the excitement of my boys when they ran across the field at Tiger Stadium before heading to Camp Istrouma this past May. It was seeing the excitement in their eyes and experiencing something few people will experience that warmed my heart. We just don’t teach academics at Holy Cross; we teach Heart, Mind, Body and Soul. Several distinguished alumni spoke to the students that day about what Holy Cross means to them.
Tell us about your teaching philosophy.
I try to keep the class interesting so that students want to learn and are engaged throughout the class period. I want them to love coming to class and being at Holy Cross as much as I do.
