TCA Stories

Debbie Wilt

“ I met my husband at TCA and became a Christian here. My life is invested in our school.”

What do you love about TCA?
I guess since I graduated from TCA, came back to teach at TCA, watched my children go through and also graduate from TCA, and now am still teaching Kindergarten at TCA, you might say I love the school. I even met my husband at TCA and became a Christian here. My life is invested in our school.
How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at TCA?
Teaching Kindergarten gives me many opportunities throughout the day to talk about Christ and how to see Him in all situations. Usually our Bible lesson can be used to help in areas as the day goes on, especially with things like sharing, kindness, truthfulness etc.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
They know how much I love them by the way I deal with them and am always there for them. They also know how much I love Jesus by how I talk about my relationship with him. One little girl told her mother that “Mrs. Wilt is bound for Jesus.”
If you could describe TCA in one word, what would it be?
Tell the one story that best reflects your experience with the TCA community.
All the teachers are invested in their students. When I became a Christian in 6th grade during a chapel program there was really no way to grow in Christ except through TCA. I did not go to church because my parents were not Christian.I knew I could go to my teachers to talk about anything and I feel that the teachers today are as approachable as they were when I was a student here.
