I feel so blessed to be part of the staff at FWCS. It feels like one big family with everyone on the staff working together to see that each student is successful—not only in academics but also in Christian values. I love the fact that we can talk about God and Jesus and get the students thinking about life skills and values that would glorify our Lord. After teaching in public schools for 20 years, I love being able to teach in such a loving environment.
