We would like to introduce you to our new line-up of teachers! Each teacher has a strong love for God and the students they will have this year. Here is a brief introduction to each one:
Thankfully, one of our new kindergarten teachers, Devon Cox, can help us in the office in August while Brittney is home with baby Calvin. There is no better introduction to Windsor than working in the office for a couple of weeks before school! Devon graduated from West Chester University with a degree in elementary education and special education. For the past two years, Devon taught kindergarten at the Goddard School in Marshallton. She is living in West Chester with her mom, sister, and four dogs while she and her fiance, Matt, plan their wedding for September 2017.
Scott Beegle and his wife live in Coatesville and are both graduates of West Chester University. Scott has taught at Achievement House Cyber Charter School and Camelot Excel Academy in Philadelphia. Scott and his wife are involved in the student ministry in their church and he has been serving in this capacity since 2006. Scott has a joy for the Lord which is contagious! He is eager to begin his new adventure teaching at WCA!
Kaitlyn Kurtz’s teaching experience is with first and second graders in Siquatapeque, Honduras. Kaitlyn felt the Lord calling her back to Pennsylvania to be close to her immediate family and supportive church family. For the past two years, she has taught students whose first language is Spanish to read English. Her love for children is evident, and her commitment to teaching is clear. Bienvenido Senorita Kurtz!
Ruth Ann Tolley will be joining our third grade team as well! Originally from Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Ruthann has also lived in Wisconsin and Virginia. For the past five years, Ruthann has taught third grade at a Christian school in Chesapeake, Virginia. Ruthann feels that “God has clearly led us to this area, and I look forward to being able to minister to Windsor children this year.”
Annie Ng is joining Mrs. Null. Annie recently graduated from James Madison University with a Master of Arts in Education. She has lived in Virginia her whole life, but she and her husband are moving to Pennsylvania to work with Young Life in Downingtown.
Mrs. Karen Whitlock has taught English at the ECHO Christian Academy for several years. She has worked with high school and middle school students, but prefers teaching middle school! She has a deep appreciation for grammar and she is looking forward to teaching the IEW program.
Media and Library
After serving the Home and School organization last year, Lindsay Habbeger is joining the faculty. Lindsay hopes to instill the love of reading into each child at WCA. Her goals are diverse across the age groups which she will teach. For our youngest students, Lindsay will be focusing on a basic understanding of media and library. For our older elementary and middle school students, Lindsay will be focusing on internet safety and using discernment while researching and using technology.
And here are some of our current teachers who will be changing grades this year:
Anne Reynolds, a veteran Windsor Christian Academy teacher, will be moving up to teach our second 3rd grade class this year (3B). Mrs. Reynolds commitment to seeing that her students have a strong foundation in reading, math and handwriting skills will surely benefit her third grade class this year.
While we were glad to see Mr. Glass as a substitute and bus driver last year at Windsor during his sabbatical, we are thrilled to welcome back Tim Glass as a full-time teacher. Mr. Glass will be back teaching fourth grade. Won’t it be fun to see Jethro grow up this year!
Beth Catranis is entering her fifth year at WCA, but this year she will be teaching fourth grade. Mrs. Catranis is eager to introduce her fourth graders to the middle ages and the wealth of history and literature from this time period.
The dynamic duo is back together again! Mrs. Heather Wise is teaching the whole fifth grade, but once again she will be joined by her wonder-aide Mrs. Ingrid Dunlap. Mrs. Dunlap will teach middle school Spanish classes and then travel to the main campus to assist Mrs. Wise.
After joining us as a kindergarten teacher, then teaching two years of fourth grade, Susan Null is stepping up to take on the sixth grade at Windsor as growing numbers call for separate sixth grade homerooms.
We are so grateful for the people God has brought to Windsor to serve and teach our children. We are thankful for the rich experiences they have had and the blessing it will be to have them with all of our children this year!
Please join us in praying for the teachers at Windsor. We are blessed to have a faculty with a wealth of experience, gifting, and expertise.
He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. ~Isaiah 40:11
