Lakeland Christian School

One 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 started teaching the year I got married and have always dreamed of being able to teach in a private Christian school. When my son was born with special needs, my husband and I wanted to ensure our little guy was going to get an education based on faith and the gospel. After many prayers, I ran into my dear friend Cheryl Norris, which led to my application submission and an opening is the exact subject and grade I had been teaching for many years. It was definitely a God thing and when the opportunity came about I knew He was calling me to LCS. 


WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?

My favorite thing to teach in my class is current events and analyzing news articles. Not only do students learn the foundations of citations, summarizing, and analyzing informative texts, they are able to apply those skills to make informed decisions about source credibility and helps promote habits of awareness and interest in current social happenings.
