A note from your Principal.

I love working with children, and it is my goal to help each one of them to learn how to be successful in life.

Thank you for trusting your child with us this year. I will do everything in my power to keep God in the center of our lives, starting every day by thanking God and asking for his guidance.

With God walking with us, we will have a wonderful and successful year at Glory Christian School.

A note from Elizabeth:
For nearly 8 years, I was a stay-at-home mom. After much prayer, in 2021-2022, God led me down a new path. I am so thankful I followed God’s guidance because it led me to my passion. I love seeing the children every morning. I love to watch them grow in confidence, spiritually, and academically. I am forever grateful for the parents’ trust and for allowing me to be a part of their child’s life.

"Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge."

With God as our refuge and guide, we will have an amazing year at Glory Christian School.
