How do you define good education?

Learning both by studying and by doing. In my personal experience, I have had several careers where I have done the job first and then went to school to study about them more. This made the study so much more relevant, practical and interesting.

 

How do you, personally, want to make an impact to students within ISW?

I hope to demonstrate a servant attitude, and provide them with the tools they need to study well.

 

What is your favorite memory or experience in ISW?

I think I’ve enjoyed the talent shows at ISW the most. It is so exciting and fun to see the hidden talents of so many in the ISW family.

 

What is something unique you want others to know about yourself?

I love radio dramas and would love to act in one someday.

How do you define good education?
I believe the most important function of “good education” would be to develop the student’s character first. The key focus should always be on training hearts to apply knowledge that affects their world view and their world around them. Also, to develop young people to influence our community. While providing a challenging academic education to teach minds, the key focus should always be on training hearts.
 

How do you, personally, want to make an impact to students within ISW?
By sharing the 40+ years of experience walking a life of discipleship in many countries and affecting those around me for good.
What is your favorite memory or experience in ISW?
I have to say the favorite memory to-date was pulling up to our apartment after 30+ hours of travel and having many of the community there waiting to meet, greet and help us up with all our luggage. The love, acceptance, and genuine excitement was incredible!
