2017-18 Teaching Staff

2016 – 17 school year is over!  It was definitely a year of ups and downs, but as I reflect on the year I believe it was a wonderful year full of many blessings.  I was very impressed with how the parents, students, and staff of our learning community supported each other throughout year.  It is a blessing to be part of a caring, faith community.

2017-18 school year will be fast approaching.  Please see the below listing for the structure of our home rooms and teaching assignments for next year:
