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

Most people call me Adam. I am the homeroom teacher of the fabulous 6th and 7th grade. I also teach a Math class in the 3rd and 4th grade. The students of LCA are a blast and they cause me to love my job. God is good and has blessed me with a great job. Outside of work, I enjoy most sports and games that have competition involved.

Besides serving as LCA's secretary, I teach the 8th-12th grade grammar, literature, and vocabulary/spelling classes. When I'm not busy with school and teaching, I love to spend time reading, being outside, and eating ethnic foods. I also think planes are really cool, and in another dimension, I like to think I'd have been a pilot.

I’m Faith Miller, and I have the privilege of being the Kindergarten teacher this year. I absolutely love children and am blessed to play a small part in coaxing little minds to start seeking to know the heart of their Creator more in the context of a classroom. Outside of school, I enjoy most outdoor activities that include soccer, frisbee, hiking, etc.

Caleb Yoder

This is the first year of teaching for me and I've been enjoying it a lot. I teach mostly in the 3rd and 4th grade classroom but also the 5th grade math. I've really loved living in the city so far, it tends to keep life interesting. Some of my hobbies are chess, art, and almost any competitive sport especially soccer.
