I Got a D!

"...that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Acts 2:21b

"I got a 'D!'" A student exclaimed in class one day when I passed back the Algebra test he had taken previously. In my own school experience, that exclamation would have been a sad exclamation but that was not the case for this young man. He was genuinely excited about the fact that he had earned a D because that meant he had actually passed an Algebra test. That situation showed me in a very tangible way what experiencing success means for a student.

Helping kids see that they can be successful in the school setting is a spring-board for them to see they can be successful in other areas of their lives.

As I reflect over my four plus years here at the school, this experience really sticks out to me as it points to how the school helps fulfill the overall mission of Gateway Woods: helping kids see that they can be successful in the school setting is a spring-board for them to see that they can be successful in other areas of their lives. It has been my pleasure to work with the staff here at Gateway Woods as well as the young people that we serve.  

At the end of September I plan to leave Gateway Woods School and thus the school is in need of a new Math teacher. Please prayerfully considering coming to Gateway to fill that position.


Brian is currently the Math Teacher at the Gateway Woods School.
