Kristen Teppig has been with us in our Business Office since the spring of last year, but we realized with the timing of her arrival, you may not have met her yet. She has been with us as a parent for several years, and we are so blessed to now have her as part of our WCCS staff! Get to know her and a little about her family in the story below!
Tell me a little about you and your family:
My husband and I have been married for 12 years and have 3 children - Dorothy, Conrad, and Brickey. We also have a black Scottish Terrier named Lulu. Most of our time is spent enjoying family and neighborhood friends, including swimming & boating on Lake Murray, outdoor movie nights, and day trips in the car.
Tells us something that we would be surprised to know about you:
I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers.
Describe how you feel God has called you to your particular career path:
I have always loved math, numbers, and fine details.
What attracted you to WCCS?
I started when my oldest was one and saw the PMO banner at Lower Campus. I had always heard great things about WCCS, so I enrolled her. I quickly fell in love with the staff and the program. When I found out about the bookkeeper position, I thought it was too good to be true and was ecstatic when I got the job!
In what particular ways do you hope to shape the learning or spiritual experience of our students here at WCCS?
I want to partner with teachers to make their jobs easier and let them focus more on teaching & guiding. Also, I want students, faculty, and staff to see me as a familiar face and a good role model.
The WCCS mission statement is “educating students to bless our world as disciples of Jesus Christ”. How do you hope to accomplish this as a faculty/staff member?
By efficiently managing the finances for WCCS, I can help to lower costs, allowing that money to used more wisely in teaching and/or marketing.
What is your biggest desire for each student that walks in to your classroom or office?
I want to be an example to students and show them that loving God can look like crunching numbers, or whatever their talents may be...and to be joyful in everything.
