“Ever since moving to Gallatin from West Tennessee, I wanted an opportunity to become a part of the community in which I now lived. Teaching at SJV has given me that chance. The smaller setting of SJV allows me to teach the whole child including watching each student grow spiritually and educationally. I am excited at the prospect of positively impacting the next generation and their families.” – Sheila Ferrell
