Elementary School Staff

John Knox teachers care deeply about the well-being and education of each child. They are committed to helping children learn not only about the world in which God has placed them, but also how to live as Christians within it–how to be part of God’s kingdom work with whatever strengths and gifts they have been given.

All staff at John Knox are committed Christians. Our teachers are partners with parents in educating children at John Knox. Teachers appreciate and encourage open, honest, and frequent communication with parents. We believe that it is as teachers and parents work in partnership under the guidance of the Holy Spirit that we are able to nurture God’s children to respond to him in love and faithful service.
