'MY JOB IS TO LOVE YOU'

FOR PAUL WHITE, a Christian Scientist who lives near Los Angeles, California, teaching is a calling, not just a profession. When he became part of a school district whose alternative high schools were allowing difficult and disruptive pupils to watch television instead of studying and engaging in classroom work, he and another teacher began to look for alternatives. The result is West Valley Leadership Academy, a public, community day school, located in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles. It's a high-school program for students for whom the traditional system hasn't worked.

Paul recently spoke with the Sentinel's Rosalie E. Dunbar about the school, the kids, and his prayerful approach to education.
