Lakeland Christian SchoolOne of the core values of LCS is the belief that we are partnering with parents in the Christian education of their children. We believe that mutual respect, communication and involvement by all partners is essential for success of our mission.LCS is a school. We believe that being a Christian school and being a top-flight academic institution should not be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we take the mandate of Colossians 3:23 that calls us to strive to be the best. We provide a variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities that enable students to identify and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities.
WHAT LED YOU TO LAKELAND CHRISTIAN SCHOOL?
When I was younger, I remember my dad sitting me on his knee and joking that I’d probably go to Florida State and become a teacher. He was right! I’m a 2009 LCS alumna! I asked my parents if I could come here for high school and always dreamed of coming back to teach because I was so inspired and influenced by the teachers here during my time at LCS. In his timing, God led me back 12 years later and it is an honor to continue our school’s mission to educate students in light of God’s word just like my teachers did for me.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO IN YOUR LCS JOB?
My favorite thing about my LCS job is the people! I love being able to share two of my passions – words and God with students each day. I also value being able to brainstorm exciting ways to teach and relate to students with my colleagues who also love their job.
WHAT MAKES LAKELAND SPECIAL?
As a sixth generation Floridian, I love how Lakeland has a small town feel with big city opportunities. I also love how it’s easy to escape into nature while not having to travel too far away. Whether it is fishing, mountain biking, or hiking, I love being in nature with my husband, two little boys and black lab.
