What do you love most about HCS??
It’s hard to pick one thing really. I love greeting everyone who is coming on campus while directing traffic, I love working with students in the classroom or computer lab to help them understand better what they are learning, I love helping anyone who comes into the office from a lunch being delivered to a student who’s lost their lunch (lol), I love sharing my faith with the students, parents and guests that come to chapel.
What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.
Family. We’re a BIG part of each student’s life. We’re here to help them through everything that life throws at them and help them to grow into the person God wants them to be. As a staff we are able to share everything from celebrations to heartaches. Encouraging and lifting each other up in prayer.
How do you integrate faith and your job at HCS??
By sharing God’s word in chapel through: song – singing, using hand motions, dancing around in praise to our Lord; lessons – puppets, objects, hands on activities; challenges – take what we’ve learned and use it in the classroom, on the playground, at home, in our neighborhood, out in the world around us.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your position at HCS??
Puppets! I use my puppets all of the time in chapel to help me share God’s word, discussing problems and the solutions, and share objects to help with the lessons.
What sets HCS students apart from other students?
Their hearts for each other and for the staff! Ex: We had a staff member who lost a loved one and was singing at the memorial service. Being nervous about losing her composure she asked for prayer. The whole department asked their students to join in prayer and the prayers that came from these students were so touching. (God answered all of our prayers and sent ants to nibble at her feet while she was singing, barefoot. She said she ended up concentrating on the ants instead of crying)
