Our elementary school team is made up of a fantastic group of teachers.
Mrs. McHardy teaches 1st grade. She studied at Landmark College in central Florida where she received a bachelor's degree in elementary education. She is finishing up her eighth year of teaching. When she was fourteen years old, she began tutoring elementary students after school. This is where her love for teaching grew and she felt God tugging at my heart to continue this call. When she is not teaching, she loves spending time with her family, baking, and repurposing old furniture.
"I set high expectations for all my students because I believe every child has the potential to reach the stars. I strive to provide a fun and loving environment within the walls of my classroom. We become family and I truly love every student God has blessed my way. Kindergarten is such an exciting and special time in a child's life - I pray I can help establish a love for school and learning. - Mrs. McHardy
Mrs. Adkins teaches 2nd grade. This is her first year at Charleston Chrisitan School and her first year teaching. She interned in 2nd grade at L. W. Conder Elementary Arts Integrated Magnet prior to graduating from Columbia Internation University. She also played soccer all four years at CIU.
Mrs. Taylor teaches third grade. This is her fourth year at CCS, but she has been teaching for 37 years total. Twenty-six of those have been in the Christian classroom. She has a BA in Elementary Education from Southeastern University.
My teaching style is putting the needs of my students first, along with a Biblical worldview in all that I do while trying to make learning fun. I love the fourth grade! They need guidance but can stand on their own when needed. Christian education has been my passion for many years, and I still have a desire to continue. I wouldn't want to do anything else as a life profession. - Mrs. Taylor
Mrs. Brooks teaches 4th grade. This is her 19th year of teaching, her first at CCS. She graduated from Flagler College with a degree in Elementary Education and Deaf Education.
I view each child as an individual, uniquely created by God with their own special gifts and talents. My goal is to help each child develop those gifts. I can't wait to meet each of my students! - Mrs. Brooks
Mr. Krueger teaches 5th grade as well as 4th and 6th grade Bible. This is his first year teaching and first year at CCS. He graduated from Columbia International University with a Bachelor of Science in Bible Teaching.
The Lord has used my first year at CCS to help confirm my calling as a Bible Teacher. The smaller school atmosphere is perfect to give each student more attention to their different learning styles and talents. My teaching style combines academic and personal discipline with light-hearted fun, when it's time to work, we work. - Mr. Krueger
