What do you love about being part of Tabor?

The relationships with colleagues, the positive working environment, the ability to be involved with students and the Christian atmosphere are all things I love about being at Tabor.

How have you seen your students grow academically or spiritually?

It is exciting for me to sign diplomas, especially for those students who were my freshmen advisees. It is so rewarding to see the transformation in students’ lives during their years at Tabor.
