Welcome to Northside Christian Elementary!Philippians 1:6 says, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you, will perform it to the day of Jesus Christ.” As a 16 year old, I accepted Christ, and that became my favorite verse almost immediately. I am confident that Christ continues to work in my own life just as I am absolutely certain that the good work begun at Northside Christian over 45 years ago continues to be blessed because of the faithful God that we have committed ourselves to.As the Elementary School Principal, I am excited about partnering with teachers, parents, volunteers, and our amazing students to pursue excellence. It is honoring to God to seek to do our very best academically. Our dedicated teachers have created a learning atmosphere that is caring and safe, yet challenges our students in all of the core subjects. Our students must be inspired to not settle for what is easy or comfortable, but to push themselves to achieve their own personal best.I also believe that God would have us pursue excellence in our daily walk as Christians. Our faculty has the passion for helping children develop the character of Christ. I am proud to work alongside teachers who each have their own personal relationship with Jesus. This allows Biblical Integration to take place naturally, because the love and knowledge of Jesus will flow through everything our teachers do. Our students know that because we love the Lord, we are to have the heart of a servant. NCES students serve Jesus by serving each other, their school, and their community.Excellence in academics and in the spiritual lives of our students can best be achieved when there is unity and cohesiveness among the adults who influence their daily lives. Because of that, I always make myself available to meet with parents. I want parents to sense and to embrace the “family atmosphere” that will help us to lay the foundation that will affect future accomplishments. As parents, teachers, and administration work together –all with the Lord’s leading- students will know they have the support to become all God wants them to be.
As I look back at my 39 years as a Christian, I have always found the Lord to be faithful. I would be honored and humbled to have your prayers as I strive for excellence in every area of the elementary program, confident that God will be faithful to help us each step of the way.
