In addition to having the opportunity to share his love of science, Mr. Shilen also enjoys infusing spirituality into all of his lessons.
"I like to meet the students where they are at so that I can then I bring them up to the high standards that we demand. I show them that I care, and I create a classroom based on respect, trust, and love. I see Christ in each one of my students, and I realize that I have as much to learn from them as they have from me. It is amazing the effort a student will put forth when they know the teacher truly cares about them; more often than not they will show quality academic progress."
