NEW STAFF SPOTLIGHT

Meet Mr. David Foster, Algebra 1 and STEM Teacher.

Mr. Foster

"I grew up in Raleigh going to St. David's School down the road. I went to Furman University in Greenville, SC for college and then NC State for graduate school. I met my wife 3 years ago and have been married for over 2 years! We welcomed our first child, Benjamin in July 2020. My favorite Scripture is Micah 7:19 - "You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea." I am looking forward to being part of a hard-working community attempting to redeem teaching/education for God's glory!"
