Exemplary Christian School Teachers At Impact Christian Academy

God has truly blessed Impact Christian Academy. To this point there have been over one hundred and twenty teachers express an interest in teaching at Impact Christian Academy, and I wanted to give you a brief update on the teachers we have hired so far.

To date we have hired fourteen of our eighteen teachers with eight having a Masters Degree or higher, (one teacher will complete their masters work in the summer of 2016). Eight of our teachers who have taught in the Florida Public School System have received a “highly effective” rating. (Approximately 15% of the teachers in Duval County have received this distinction). Four of our teachers have their reading endorsement and two have an ESOL endorsement.

We have been blessed with an exemplary faculty. In my twenty five years of leading Christian schools I have not seen anything close to the excellence exemplified in this group of teachers. Their love for God, their love for students, their passion for the art and science of teaching, their passion for students and their willingness to share their lives with their students is evident in each and every one of our teachers.

It has been a true blessing from God to be a part of the team He is assembling at Impact Christian Academy. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam: All things to the Greater Glory of God.
