Sixth Grade Homeroom
I am a graduate of Northern Nash High School, Chowan College, and East Caroline University with a BS degree in Education. I have taught for thirty plus years in the public school system and am thrilled now to have the opportunity of work in a Christian environment.
I am married with one daughter, Sonnie Leigh, who is a junior in college. We have a family dog, a miniature dachshund, named Bella.
Seventh Grade Homeroom
My name is Keisha Ward. I was born and raised in New Hanover county, but my family has called Nash county home since April 1998. We have spent all 18 of those years living in the city of Rocky Mount fulfilling the great commission through our lives.
A little About ME…I Love…..
God - He is the reason why I am the person I am today.
The Bible - I am living proof of the transforming power of the Word of God.
My family - I enjoy hanging out with my three children and my mom and friends I consider family– talking, watching movies, going on trips with them, dragging them to any aquarium I can find. It really does not matter what we do when we are together!
Learning – I am a life long learner. God has given us so much to learn and love about this world. I enjoy discovering the gifts He gave us and using them to help other people.
Teaching – Not only do I love learning, I also love teaching and watching others discover the beauty of God, His love for them, who they are in Him and their purpose on this Earth.
Serving – Whether I am a part of a mission’s team, singing on the worship team, serving food, loving on children, or counseling someone, I love to give out to others what God has given me.
I am honored to join the New Life Christian Academy family in their commission to train up the next generation of Leaders for Christ in our community. I am excited to get to know each child and their families and look forward to serving you all this year. Go Warriors!!
