Melissa Stava, M.A., believes that the time professors are given in the classroom with students can be some of the most sacred and influential. Stava thrives in settings where she and her students are dissecting whom God has made us to be, how those talents and our emerging knowledge can be honed and sharpened, and how that impacts others.
