Our Staff Says...
I love being a teacher at Foundation because I have the opportunity to disciple kids every day, helping them grow spiritually, academically and socially. We can see so much growth in our students, because there are great relationships between parents, staff and students. It’s a lovely community.
I appreciate being free to integrate faith into every aspect of the classroom. I love that I can not only pray for my kids but also pray with them. And there is nothing more precious than when my kids pray over me. I am not just teaching the curriculum and I’m not just trying to form good citizens. Together, my kids and I, we are learning to be more like Jesus.
