Other Information

Mrs. Williamson believes teaching is a priceless gift. God has given teachers special abilities to explain academic concepts, to shape students’ characters, to lead them, and to encourage them to develop certain talents. She believes the best teachers are those whose hearts are truly in their work.

She believes those who give their hearts to teaching find their hearts filled in return. The satisfaction that comes is a deep sense of worthwhile labor, of realizing just how many lives their teaching has touched. Teachers sow seeds in the fields of young minds, and their impact on students cannot be measured. Teachers shape the thoughts and character of future generations.

She believes having a sense of purpose in the teaching profession I can make an incredible difference in the classroom. When students know that their teacher cares about them and wants to teach them, she feels they are more apt to listen and learn. Students can sense the heart of the teacher.

Teaching involves so much more than giving students formulas to learn and facts to memorize. She believes, seeing the potential in students and encouraging their development, she has the opportunity to change their lives forever.
