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?
A friend that I had previously taught with in Hillsborough County contacted me one summer and asked if I had ever thought about teaching in a private school setting. She had accepted a new position and thought that I would enjoy taking over for her here at LCS. While I had never considered teaching anywhere else, God was moving in my life and I needed to follow the opportunity that was put before me. I knew that teaching here would provide an opportunity for me to grow professionally, but it would also provide an opportunity for my daughter to receive a Christian education. Being able to teach at a place that I love and share that with my child has been a huge blessing for our family.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO TEACH IN YOUR CLASS?
I enjoy teaching anything academic, but many of the children I have taught over the years struggle with self-confidence and feeling successful. When we make a tiny breakthrough and my students are genuinely proud of themselves, that’s what makes my heart happy.
WHAT IS ONE FUN FACT THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Around the age of 17 I developed an allergy to water. It has gotten better over the years, but any time that my body is submerged in water for an extended period of time (especially hot or salt water) I start to itch like crazy!
