Family: There is a sense of family at HCS. The teachers, parents, and students join together to love and care for one another. I keep in touch with many of my past students and families and just love that camaraderie.
How do you integrate faith and learning at HCS?
I try to integrate Bible stories across the curriculum. I love our Bible time each day and it is the favorite lesson for many of the children. I also love that I can start each day in prayer…I give the children time to pray each day so I am aware of their prayer requests and can bring them to the Lord during my prayer time.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
My favorite subject to teach is writing and because I feel it is so important, I spend a lot of time developing writing skills with my students. The children have a sense of accomplishment when they take a story or poem from the rough draft to the final draft. I usually have the students share their stories with administration once or twice a year. The students love this time!!!
What sets HCS students apart from other students?
Because we have the opportunity to help our students grow spiritually as well as academically, I think our students are gracious individuals. When they graduate from HCS, they leave with a strong foundation that prepares them for the future.
