Why do you love teaching or working at WCCS?
Working at WCCS allows me to fulfill God's call on my life to impact teenagers with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. WCCS is more than just a school. It is a place where students and families are presented with the Gospel of Jesus and given opportunities to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and to grow as His disciples in order to glorify Him and bless the world.
How do you believe WCCS prepares students for success in college and beyond?
Students are offered a variety of courses and electives; they are exposed to standardized testing every year, and they are given opportunities to explore various careers through career inventories, guest speakers, college visits, and job shadowing days. Students and families are able to work with faculty/staff one-on-one, and this allows them to thrive as individuals.
How is faith and learning integrated at WCCS?
Biblical integration is encouraged in every subject area. Students take Bible every year, and they are able to attend weekly chapels and Bible studies. Additionally, the faculty/staff openly share their testimonies with students and families.
How do you believe God has uniquely equipped you for your position here at WCCS?
God has blessed me with the ability to relate to teens and their families. He has given me the gift of teaching as well. I don't know why He chose me, but I'm so glad He did. As my grandma used to say, "God can draw a straight line with a crooked stick."
What sets WCCS students apart from other students?
Our students are the same as other students, but the opportunities they have to grow spiritually is unique to being in a Christian school setting.
