Middle School Principal
Welcome to Middle School at Fellowship! What an amazing journey these years are in the life of an individual. This is a wonderful time of change, growth, and transition for students as they move from childhood and prepare for high school. During the 6th-8th grades, students begin the process of taking ownership of their learning and developing the habits for future success. Many discover how they are gifted academically, artistically, or athletically and establish the skill necessary for success at the next level. Socially, they begin to interact at a more mature level with adults and their peers, but most importantly, they are encouraged to embrace who they are in Christ.
We are blessed to have caring teachers who are called to teach and disciple your child during these formative years. They bring their subject matter alive and help the students navigate any challenges that might be experienced along the way. They approach every subject with biblical integration and the rigor needed to provide a strong academic foundation for high school. Students who are gifted in math have the opportunity to receive high school credits for Algebra I and Geometry. We also offer, for those who show an aptitude for Spanish, a high school Spanish I course. We intentionally provide opportunities during the year for your child to explore their interest in art, computer, and Spanish as well as numerous elective classes that you may choose from. In addition to our strong academics, our athletic program offers a wide variety of sports and we encourage our students and families to get involved. We believe that sports complements what goes on in the classroom by providing an environment for mentoring, developing discipline, and building friendships.
It is our prayer that we can continue to positively impact the lives of students and their families for the glory of God. We would love for you to become part of the FCS family.

Favorite Bible Verse: For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
What I enjoy most: The most rewarding part of teaching to me is watching students get excited about science and see God's fingerprints in all of creation. My desire is that students would know without a doubt that He exists and science shouts as a testimony of His glory. Second, I believe that education is the vehicle that equips students with the knowledge and discipline they need to fulfill their own calling and purpose for which God planned in advance. Middle school is about students taking ownership of their learning so that they can be ready for that calling.
