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?
After four years of living in the Middle East, my husband and I felt the Lord leading us back to the U.S. While staying with family in Lakeland, the LCS secondary art position was posted online. I knew I was meant to apply.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?
My favorite thing to teach changes every year, because student interest and need changes every year. My favorite time of the year, however, is the end of the year art show. It reminds me of how far so many students have come and how they all have a unique style and voice in their work.
WHAT IS ONE FUN FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am conversational in Jordanian Arabic. You may hear me speaking with Mr. Clever in Arabic rather than English. We are trying to help our son grow up bilingual.
