Theory of Community Development with Dr. Fikkert and Professor Corbett. I was learning so much about how we look at the poor and it really changed the way I think about caring for others.

I genuinely love being in classes. Taking my English classes this past year was a joy and confirmation of my love for the subject. It doesn’t hurt that the English department is awesome!

Major

Elementary Education

 

Hometown

Manchester, TN

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

So many to choose from! It’s definitely a toss-up between Children’s Literature with Dr. Pennington and 20th Century with Dr. Morton. I loved Children’s Lit because I love kids and books written for kids. I loved 20th Century because I love history and I really appreciated Dr. Morton’s sense of humor at 8:00 in the morning!

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

The girls can expect to become part of a second family. They can look forward to getting to grow in new relationships and in their relationship with Christ. They can also expect to make some great memories involving tea, cake, late night excursions and lots of other crazy stuff!

 

What I'm all about

I’m all about being outside in the sun! If you can’t find me, I’m probably outside! Also, tea, movies, good food, music, family, my dog, being with people, growing in Christ, the color yellow and lots of other stuff!

Major/Minor

Elementary Education and Community Development

 

Hometown

Doylestown, PA

 

Favorite class taken at Covenant

My favorite class was Teaching in a Pluralistic Society because it dealt with real life issues and centered around people. It taught me a deeper appreciation and level of respect for all cultures and races.

 

What the residents on my hall can expect

The residents on my hall can expect a warm, welcoming, and honest community. They can expect a lot of fun and goofing off as well as real people who care about one another. I hope to have a hall that is characterized by their love for Jesus and all people.

 

What I'm all about

I am really fun-loving, social, determined, and love to have a good time. I love kids and would love to work with orphans someday: teaching them, loving them, and bringing them to Christ. I am so excited about this next year and having this position! I look forward to loving the girls on my hall and growing in our relationships with Christ together!
