We asked Mr. Hostetler…
What is your favorite part about being a Teacher?
My favorite part about being a teacher at Liberty is helping young people develop math skills that will be used the rest of their lives. I enjoy being in the classroom interacting with humor, a bit of sarcasm, and fellowship with students in each of the different levels of math.
What is your favorite thing about Liberty Christian School?
My favorite thing about Liberty is the respect that students and staff show and share for each other. The Christian atmosphere is a very nice change after 42 years in the public schools. I really enjoy the students and being a part of their lives as they grow in their Christian walk and academic success.
