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?
“I’ve been teaching for 7 years now, either in a public or charter school in Polk County. When I moved to the south side of Lakeland, I started hearing more about LCS and began to think that it sounded like a great place to plant myself as a teacher. During this past school year, I had been praying a lot about whether or not God wanted me to stay at the school were I was teaching, and in late January I felt a tug to check the LCS website to see what openings there were. Sure enough, there was a High School Social Studies position open, and the rest is history!”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?
“It is so hard to narrow down my favorite part about teaching Social Studies. I love teaching about real events that actually occurred, about how they relate to each other, and how we can apply what we learn from history into our lives today. I am so excited to teach World History, because it is a subject that I have not gotten to teach very often yet in my career. I’m also looking forward to teaching AP US History (this will be the third year I’ve taught it), because US History is one of my favorite subjects to teach.”
WHAT IS ONE FUN FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
“When I’m not teaching, I’m the Worship Director at Ardella Baptist Church here in Lakeland. I’ve always loved music and worship leading, and I love getting to do that at church every week. Also, I am originally from the Chicago suburbs and am a HUGE Chicago Cubs fan!”
