Judith Eskins
Math & Science
While it is true that all students cannot achieve an A, I believe that every student can achieve his personal best. Therefore, my primary responsibility with a student is to find that personal best, and help him achieve it. I believe that Christian education provides an environment which encourages that achievement. Also, I believe Christian education allows the educator to teach every academic discipline from a Biblical perspective freeing him to follow God's calling on his life whole-heartedly.

Amy Pickering
Social Studies & History

My philosophy for Christian education is to allow children to view life from God's perspective because He is the Truth. I believe that a student's Biblical world view is shaped through (1) His Creation, (2) His Son, Jesus Christ, and (3) His Holy Word, the Bible.
