"While at WCCS, I have taught several students who struggled either academically, socially, emotionally, or spiritually. When I see these students be successful on the upper campus and eventually graduate, it blesses my heart to know that I had a small part in helping them become the person God created them to be."

What do you love most about WCCS?
I love that WCCS is a Christian school. I'm so thankful that I can teach children that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Why do you love teaching or working at WCCS?
The WCCS staff is like a family. We all truly care about each other and our students.
What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.
Family. I chose this word because, as Christians, we are a family in Christ. When one of us is hurting, we all hurt. In the same way, when one of us is rejoicing over a situation, we all rejoice.
How do you believe WCCS prepares students for success in college and beyond?
I have 2 sons who graduated from WCCS , one in 2011 and one in 2014. Both were prepared for college and did well, especially in the area of writing. Both of my children are strong Christians. One is in full-time ministry, and the other one is preparing to go into the ministry. Both were positively influenced by their teachers at WCCS.
How is faith and learning integrated at WCCS?
As a teacher, I try to Biblically integrate all subjects. I strive to demonstrate to my second graders how God and His Word provides the foundation for all the learning that takes place in our classroom.
As a teacher, what is a unique experience, talent, or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students? For staff, how do you believe God has uniquely equipped you for your position here at WCCS?
I have taught at WCCS for 20 years. During those years, I have learned a great deal about children and how they want to be loved and understood. As a mom and now as a grandparent, I am learning how to listen to my students and be patient with them.
What sets WCCS students apart from other students?
I think our students have a good understanding of the importance of having a relationship with Christ. Knowing this will benefit them far more than any other knowledge I can teach them. Having secular knowledge lasts for a while, but having spiritual knowledge lasts an eternity.
