  • After finishing my master's degree and feeling called by the Lord to seek out teaching opportunities, Cedarville University was one of the first places I looked, as I have known several graduates from the communication department who praised the digital media program as well as the school's commitment to a biblical worldview. Immediately, I was drawn to Cedarville by its hardworking students, gracious faculty, and the all-around commitment to loving God and knowing His Word. I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to teach here!
