"I love working at Classical Prep for about a million reasons—or maybe I should say about 900-some odd. I love working here because of our students. They come from all sorts of backgrounds and with all different ability levels but they are incredible people. I’m excited every day to give them the skills they don’t even know they need yet—the ability to write a coherent argument or to find a country on a map, to respect that classmate that is aggravating them and to use their words to communicate their frustrations, to follow the rules and to recognize the relationship between actions and consequences. But I also find great joy working with the staff and faculty we have at CPS. We are a team, and I feel valued and appreciated by so many. Teaching is not for the faint of heart, but with a team like ours, it’s a lot more fun."

As a History Teacher at Classical Preparatory School, I take immense pride in the opportunity to play a role in shaping the young minds of the next generation. What I love most about my job is the chance to make a meaningful impact on the lives of the remarkable scholars I have the honor of teaching. Each day, I step into the classroom with a sense of excitement, knowing that I have the opportunity to influence young minds and help them grow into informed, responsible, and compassionate individuals. Classical Preparatory School's commitment to academic excellence and character development aligns perfectly with my own values and aspirations as an educator. I'm grateful to work in an environment where I can not only provide a strong academic foundation but also foster critical thinking, empathy, and a sense of responsibility in my scholars.

"I joined the staff at CPS as the school was just beginning, and the longer I work here, the more I understand how important a classical education is for the students of today’s culture. Even at the kindergarten level, we begin teaching students that goodness, truth and beauty are worth pursuing, and using the “great books” as our literature curriculum allows students to understand what qualities a true hero/heroine possesses, inspiring them to develop within themselves the habits of a Classical Prep scholar.
A child’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity are the perfect catalysts for engaging life-long learners to partner with us in making the world a better place. At Classical Prep we believe teaching the liberal arts to scholars enables them to use all of their senses to understand truth, to defend justice, and to create beauty. The teachers and staff at CPS keep our eyes not just on the work of today, but we are filled with hope as we train the leaders of tomorrow."
