We asked Mrs. Girt…
What is your favorite part about being a Teacher?
My favorite part about being a teacher is experiencing learning with all of my students. The moment when a student suddenly understands a concept or asks a very deep question is one of my favorite parts of teaching. Especially, the look on a student’s face when they are excited about learning and wants to share it with someone else. My favorite part is not only the learning experience but also getting to know all of my students. Learning about who they are as a learner, and what motivates them to grow every day.
What is your favorite thing about Liberty Christian School?
My favorite thing about Liberty Christian School is the very supportive community of people I work with. I have never been in such a community, where I am supported and encouraged every day. God has created a wonderful community where the people glorify Him in everything that they do.
