"When ever one is concerned with practice, with action, then ethics and values must play a role. And so the Christian educator, the "trainer" in an applied discipline, must ask himself, What am I offering to my students by way of ethical guidance concerning the practice into which I an initiating them? The assumption, common to secular education, that one simply equips students with neutral tools or skill which are to be used purely according to their personal whims and desires, is just not acceptable in a Christian education. One can't guarantee that guidance will be accepted and followed, but it is irresponsible not to offer it” --William Hasker

  • My Story

    In high school, I was having a hard time determining what I wanted study in college. I always enjoyed being challenged, and since the atom had already been discovered, I decided to go with the one area that always presented a challenge (and often a struggle). Computer Science was a fairly new area of study and has continued to present a challenge with its increasingly wide range of interest.
