Manager of Grounds & Maintenance
Marketing and Graphic Design Specialist
I’m excited to be here at TCA. I’ve worked in IT and Networking for the last 10 years and I’ve worked with Graphic Design and Live Music Production for the last 4 years. I’ve been married to my wonderful wife, Emily, for the last 6 years and we have a beautiful 2 year old daughter, Melody. Although I love graphic design and music, my other passion is sneakers, so please, let’s have a conversation if you’re into them as well.
B.S. Business and Engineering | Drexel University
This year is my 13th year being involved in some way at The Christian Academy. I started out volunteering in the classroom, the office, going on field trips, helping teachers, prayer group meeting, etc.. I now have the best job -working in the school office for 5 years! My husband John and I discovered TCA when our oldest was in middle school. Since then we have sent all 4 of our kids to TCA- with 3 already graduated and the youngest a senior. It has been a huge blessing as a family to be apart of the TCA family and see our kids thrive here. One of my favorite things to do now with time off is visit two of my children who have moved away to amazing places to visit- Colorado and Massachusetts.
Elementary Remedial Specialist
I am a 2004 graduate from The Christian Academy. I am married to my high school sweetheart, who also graduated from TCA. We have three children all of which will be attending TCA this year and I am blessed that I will be able to share this time with them, while also working for TCA. I graduated from Wilmington University with a B.S in Psychology. I love going to the shore with my family and spending time with friends. I am thrilled to be a part of the Student Support Team where I will be helping the elementary school students with social emotional learning. I will also be providing the student who need additional education support and enrichment. I am excited to see what God has in store for me this year.
I am so excited to become a part of the TCA family. My husband graduated from TCA in ’87 and it was just understood that we would send our children here when the time came. Our son will be starting kindergarten this year and our niece will begin as a 5th grader. I am looking forward to helping the Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers as an Aide this year and cannot wait to see these little ones grow. I am a transplant from Mississippi and moved here in 2009. My husband and I met through martial arts and have a deep respect for our training. We got married in 2012 and have 2 cats and 1 dog. I love my Saviour, music, putting things together (think IKEA!), fall weather, and Starbucks.
I first came to TCA as a second grade student, and have been assisting elementary teachers since middle school, when I chose Teacher’s Aide for the Friday afternoon activity period. I love used book shopping with my husband Todd. I will want to lay eyes on every book in the store, but you’re most likely to find me in the Biography/Memoir and YA aisles. One of my quarantine purchases was a beautiful lap harp, so I’ve been enjoying learning to pluck out some of my favorite songs. My son Micah (a prolific reader himself) graduated from TCA in 2018 and is happy to be back on campus this fall at Cedarville University.
I started working at TCA 15 years ago when my youngest daughter, Makayla began kindergarten. My oldest daughter, Kaleigh was in sixth grade at that time. Kaleigh is now a music teacher in Maryland and Makayla is a student at Clarks Summit University after attending Word of Life Bible Institute for a year. My husband, Mark, is a music teacher, as well, and the marching band director with the Interboro School District. He and I met while attending Liberty University. We have been married for 30 years. We attend Aldan Union Church. In my spare time, I enjoy flower and vegetable gardening and preserving the fruits of my harvest in the Fall. I also enjoy reading, quilting, and just being creative.
Admissions and Marketing Coordinator
Being a part of the TCA family has been such an incredible privilege for me. I started at TCA as a substitute teacher and quickly fell in love with this school. I served as a teacher in our preschool program, taught high school graphic design and yearbook for the 2020-2021 school year. This year I’m excited to put my background in marketing / graphic design to good use by serving as our school’s Admissions & Marketing Coordinator (while still teaching HS graphic design & yearbook). I’m a host at heart and love that I have an opportunity to come alongside our new families and make them feel at home at TCA. My favorite things include having breakfast with my hubby, going on long walks with our goldendoodle Lady, and redecorating our apartment every other weekend (please pray for my husband). You’ll find me running around TCA, coffee in hand, with a smile on my face. Come say hello!
