Heather attends Englewood Baptist Church where she signs in the ASL ministry, works in the children's ministry, and on the set-up team.
She has been married to her husband, Billy, for 15 years. They have 2 sons.
She enjoys encouraging students to learn.
Heather was a "good" person growing up, but she realized that something was missing in her life. Through the witness of others in her late teens, she found the need for a personal relationship with Jesus. Since that day, she has been serving the Lord as she teaches children and comes alongside families.
Twelfth Grade Homeroom
Carmen attends the Gold Valley Church of God of Prophecy and is the State Youth Director for NC Church of God of Prophecy.
She is married to Christopher, and has one daughter, Abygail, who attends NLCA.
Her favorite thing about teaching is connecting with the younger generation and seeing them grow in the Lord. She also loves seeing them grasp concepts they did not understand before.
God has brought Carmen far in life, and she is thankful He is not done with her yet. Her goal is to grow in him everyday.
High School Art
Kim has lived in the Nash County area her whole life.
God sent her wonderful husband to her when she was twenty-three years old. They have worked together with kids through Boy Scouts.
She has worked with public school until God blessed her with what she calls “the best job she's ever had other than being a nanny."
All her life, she wondered why God gave her such a “mixed” bag of talents. Now that she is at NLCA, she knows why. Kim thanks God every day for giving her the opportunity to love all the children. Each one is a blessing in their own way, and she feel very blessed that she would be allowed to teach children about God’s artistic beauty in everything around them.
Elem. Music, H.S. Spanis, H.S. Health, & M.S. Band
Melissa attends Englewood United Methodist where she is the choir director and pianist.
Her favorite part of teaching is building relationships with students and learning as she teaches.
Melissa accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior as a child when she was praying with her mom before bed one night. She has had the honor of leading each of her children to the Lord in the same way. She has always been active in church, especially in music. God gives her hope and a thirst to know Him more every day.
