Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23

CLHubbardNEW 2016-16 STAFF: Middle School Language Arts and PE Teacher

It is very interesting how God can move us full circle. In 1997, I began teaching at Faith Christian Academy—elementary PE and middle school girls volleyball, basketball, and track. I was an English teacher at heart and was soon moved to the high school to teach 9th grade English and coach C- team volleyball and basketball. It was in these two years that I met and married my soulmate, Blair Hubbard, a fellow teacher at Faith.

I started going to Faith when I was in 2nd grade. I loved my time at all three campuses. I, along with all three of my brothers, grew up at Faith and graduated from here.

NEW 2016-17 STAFF:  Development and Special Events

I am a mom of two FCHS graduates and I love this school! I have found a place where I feel most called to serve in God’s kingdom because I believe in paying it forward. Faith Christian Academy was a huge part of our daughters’ development years in middle school and high school and it continues to be the place where I am most deeply rooted in relationships. I am grateful for the opportunity to invest in a community where I can witness the glory of God in and through staff, students and families whose desire is to raise up a generation of Christ followers!
