"After spending eight summers at Adventist summer camps, I found my passion in l leading young souls to Christ. I also enjoy finding ways to make history and literature both relevant to my students, and use these academic disciplines as a means of connecting students to their own unique callings in Christ. I believe that the best education occurs when students build lasting relationships of trust with their teachers and peers that transcend the classroom."

 

Whitney Robison

Supply List

Bachelor of Arts in Education
Master of Science in Literacy Education

"Before I began teaching I spent many years working at summer camps and being involved in children's ministry. I enjoy design and creativity, and have applied those skills as yearbook sponsor for the past three years. I enjoy teaching students to become self-directed learners with strong social and personal skills. My teaching philosophy and approach to discipline are strongly influenced by the "Love and Logic" model based on William Glasser's "choice theory." Studying scripture with my students and teaching them how to better understand and explore the Bible in their personal devotional life is important to me. I feel a particular passion for the disciplines of reading and writing, and I feel that students with a strong foundation in these fields will excel in all other disciplines."
