Why do you think a Christian education is important?
Christian education at Watersprings is so important because it provides a superior education that meets state standards but from a Biblical perspective. Our Mission Statement conveys it perfectly: "Partnering with Christian parents, Watersprings School utilizes a Godly foundation of love, truth and discipline to train our students spiritually, academically, physically and socially for a lifetime of glorifying and serving the Lord."
How do you make a difference in the lives of students?
Every single day I get to spend time in God’s Word and I pray and ask the Lord to use me as His vessel. I make sure that my personal itinerary is not the priority and that I am open to whatever He brings my way. It’s not me making the difference, its Christ working through me.
What sets Watersprings School students apart?
We have an incredible staff and student body! They not only soak up God’s Word, they live it out in the classroom, on the playground, in their homes and in the community.
Anything else you would like to share?
In 2000, I took a job working in a Special Education Classroom. It was then that I knew that the Lord had created me to teach. In 2004, the Lord brought me to Watersprings and since then, I have had the privilege of teaching 2nd grade, 4th grade and High School Bible and Literature. In 2013, Pastor Rick placed me in the position of Elementary Principal and I have been so blessed to work with all the incredibly gifted staff and student body. I am so thankful that the Lord has given me a passion and joy for education and for working with His children!
