“What did the Gospel mean to you when you came to Christ, and what does it mean to you every day?”
–William George, Head of School, Asheville Christian Academy

“As you begin planning a unit to teach, what questions would you be asking as you plan the unit? (Walk me through your planning process.) At the end of your year of teaching (Third) Grade, how will you know if you were successful as a third grade teacher?”
–Steve Groen, Principal, Calvin Christian School
