I like CCS as it’s been a significant part of my life. I’m a former student, former teacher, and current parent. The focus on character, discipleship, and transforming oneself to be more like Christ is a needed focus in today’s culture.
Where the Lord was leading me, I walked with Him. And here I am.
Exodus 33:15 – Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.”
I enjoy time with my family; also I enjoy reading, gaming, hunting, and carving.

I enjoy interacting with the staff, students and families of CCS. I like the emphasis of the school and home working together to shape the heart of each child. I like that the goal is not just academics but also Godly character. I like the positive atmosphere of the staff and how they work and support one another.

Mrs. Shirk has taught at CCS for 1 year but has 10 years teaching experience.
“CCS is different than any other school I have ever been part of. I love teaching math and seeing those “light bulb” moments when students really get it, but more than that, I love having the opportunity to see students grow in every aspect of their lives…academic, social, and spiritual. As a middle school teacher, I hope to plant seeds in my students’ lives that will eventually bear fruit for the Kingdom of God.
