Our Great Team

Rod and Christa

God has blessed us with the privilege of working with a really great staff team here at LCA. Along with both of them teaching several classes, Rod leads out in administration while Christa is the academic dean, teacher’s mentor and curriculum guru. We love these kids at LCA and the opportunity that we have to show Jesus to them and their families. Outside of school, we’ll take any chance we have to spend time with our charming, growing adult children.

Hi there! I am actually an alumni and now teach 6th grade math here at LCA. One thing I like is that I’m able to teach the students, relate to some of their struggles, and give them my advice. Outside of school, I enjoy playing sports and hanging out with friends and family.

Marie Stoltzfus

Hi! Despite the fact that as a teenager the dream of being a teacher never existed, the Lord has brought amazing teaching opportunities into my life. Teaching English in Mexico at a Russian Mennonite school the past two years has been a life-changing experience. And now, the doors have been opened to teach at LCA. All I can say is thank you, Jesus, for handing me this opportunity. Some random facts about me: I was raised on a farm, milking cows. I grew up with six sisters and two brothers. I love coffee! This is my prayer for the school year, “Lord, fill me with your love so I, in turn, can pour out love to each and every student. Give me the wisdom, patience, and grace for every day, every situation. Lord, help me to be an instrument for you.”

Alyssa Schwartz

I teach 3rd and 4th grade and I love my job here, teaching, and spending time with my students and the other staff. I also really enjoy coffee, reading, puzzles, and hanging out with my family, but not necessarily in that order because my family is my favorite.
