It is a great honor to recognize our outstanding staff members. The OCS 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year is Mrs. Brenda French, middle school ELS and Bible teacher! Here is how some of her students, parents, and peers describe her:
“My favorite thing about Mrs. French is her Bible class. She is an awesome Godly woman who loves the Lord!”
“Mrs. French gives us one-on-one help, encourages questions, and comes around while we’re working to see if we need help.”
“A couple of months ago, I was really shy and low-spirited when I first got here…now I feel like I can be myself. Mrs. French is fun to be around and encourages us to be joyful and face our fears and struggles and to see God’s hand in our struggles..”
“She has a genuine, sincere love for teaching and for the students. She makes learning fun and interesting for the kids”
“ My son loves her and she must exude a great amount of kindness to the kids!”
