Why are you in Christian education?

I teach to be obedient to the calling the Lord has given me to assist parents in their God-given responsibility in raising up their children in the Lord.

What sets GCS apart?

To truly train up a child in today's culture there are so many different threads needed to disciple a child. At Grace, those threads are teachers from Kindergarten through high school. They include art, music, and physical education teachers. Coaches from athletics to drama. Classroom aides to office support staff. Maintenance to food services. Additional threads from Grace Chapel Church's children's and youth ministries. All these work together in helping raise up our children in the Lord.

Why are you thankful to be at GCS?

I am grateful to be a part of a school that the Lord is at the center. To be a part of a growing program and have so many well-qualified teachers that the Lord has brought together is truly exciting.
