integrating a biblical worldview through project-based learning 

with Dennis Eastman of Biola University

I am enjoying the mental health topics. They are helping personally, and how I interact with my students. My favorite saying is "School does not define you but God defines you." I want my students to realize that even though school is a struggle for them, God has a plan for their lives.
