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?
My husband is a minister. We received a call to pastor a church here in Lakeland. Having spent my entire career in special education, God also opened the door for me to immediately become part of the LCS family. Having the opportunity to have my oldest daughter, Grace, and to see family daily on campus was just icing to the cake!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?
I am a math teacher by nature, however, I love all subjects. I did not go to school to teach science and social studies, so I enjoy teaching students fun ways to master the material in those subjects. I also enjoy when God opens the door to allow connections between subjects. I have the opportunity to experience that every day in my class!
WHAT IS ONE FUN FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
My first teaching job was in Beijing, China. I loved the culture and people! I also spent a semester in college studying at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, a school for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. I know some sign language and love to use it, but it certainly is a language you lose if you don’t use.
