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 volunteering at LCS, I saw the project-based science learning in which students were engaged, and it was amazing! It is something I had always wanted to do as a “Christian school teacher,” but never managed to find the time. The RISE Institute was a fit from the start.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?
Directing students to handle the imperfections dished out by life is among the greatest teaching privileges I enjoy. In photography, for example, there are so many ways to goof—and it’s important for students to push past the errors they have made and adjust to make the next shot better.
WHAT IS ONE FUN FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Video games are a (very) occasional guilty pleasure, my favorite being the Forza racing series.
