The junior division (middle school) focuses on literature and writing (This is what I teach!) and science. These classes are structured to help prepare students for a more structured learning environment for high school. We give grades and have a more traditional style classroom setting. This picture is from my first year teaching and I am beginning my fourth year at Deerstream Learning Center. My degree is in middle school language arts and this is genuinely my dream job. I get to work one day each week teaching my very eager students for 3 hours. Discipline problems do not exist. The students enjoy learning and are, for the most part, excited to participate in our discussions. Because Deerstream is a non-denominational Christian organization I am also free to share Christ and can bring out spiritual truth as we study together.
This is our administrator. Grace was feeling left out of the pictures so she was excited to have her picture taken too!
