“My teachers have been great role models for my faith at TFA, and every class finds some way to include faith into the curriculum in some way. I feel like the most significant way I’ve grown in my faith is from learning from my peers through bible studies and conversations. I’ve been a chaplain for the past four years at TFA, and this has also helped me more deeply understand my own faith and be a better Christian leader to others.”

Teahna Daniels – Class of 2015

“TFA had everything. One experience I really enjoyed was the senior trip, being able to bond with my class. There are so many memories, from making some of my best friends here to having some of the best teachers and coaches, there was a lot of support.”

“They want to know that you care about them. I try to go see their extra-curricular activities, I try to make sure that I am talking to them everyday-checking in with them. I think most of all they want to know that someone cares about them and loves them beyond the walls of academics. You may not love science, but that doesn’t mean you and I can’t connect.”

Will Zavala – Parent & Educational Technologist

“I’m grateful to come to a place where I know Daphne get’s loved and supported just as much as I try to love and support my students.”
