FROM OUR ADMINISTRATOR:
I am beyond honored that God has called me into the position of Administrator at Lakeview Christian School. I have a huge passion for children and families and am so excited to be able to live out this passion at Lakeview. I have a deep rooted love of watching children thrive in an environment where they are cherished and encouraged to grow into all that God planned them to be, both academically and spiritually.
I graduated from the University of Florida with my Masters in Elementary Education along with Early Childhood and Special Education Endorsements. I have taught 4th Grade at Lake Placid Elementary, taught part time at the Lake Placid Montessori School, and served as Children's Ministry Director at Memorial United Methodist Church. The last 10 years I have owned and operated a local gift shop business with my partners. I have also spent much time and dedication helping administer a local foundation that is near and dear to my heart, the Mason G. Smoak Foundation. Through this foundation, I have helped facilitate the year-long Youth Leadership Highlands program for 10th graders from around Highlands County. My greatest joy in life is being mom and mentor to my three children (Gabe, Landon, Ellie).
Memorial United Methodist Church has been my home for over 30 years and all three of my children have attended Lakeview Christian School. I firmly believe in Lakeview as a ministry and also as an excellent foundation for academic growth and success. It is my goal for both of these elements to continue to grow alongside each other so students will continue to grow in their faith, knowledge, and wisdom.
