St. Paul's Teaching Staff

  St. Paul's Teaching Staff  
Qualified, Christian teachers see their students as blessings from the Lord and their time in the classroom as an opportunity to serve their Savior while serving their students. Throughout the day, students see faith in action as it is displayed by their teacher's words, actions, attitudes, and even discipline. Small class sizes allow teachers to give individual attention to students and develop a relationship with students and parents. Teachers also make summer home visits to devlop that personal contact with each family for the purpose of working together in Christian education.

Upper grade teachers are using the specific abilities the Lord has given to each in a semi-departmentalized (middle school) system. Each teacher teaches a subject in which they are especially qualified. Students then move to that classroom for that teacher's particular subject.
