We would like to extend a warm "Warrior Welcome" to Mrs. Jamie Newland! Jamie has over 11 years of experience in kindergarten and will be joining CCA for the 2021-2022 school year as our full day kindergarten teacher. Jamie was named "Iola's 2021 Elementary Teacher of the Year". Jamie and her husband Tyler have two children who will be attending CCA, James (3rd) and Jo (2nd). She has a love for children and for Jesus and we are excited to have her! Welcome Mrs. Newland!
Please welcome Mrs. Heidi Bolt as our middle and high school mathematics teacher. Mrs. Bolt graduated from Washburn University with her Bachelors degree in education with an emphasis in math, and she has a Masters degree in leadership from Pittsburg State University. She has over 30 years of teaching experience! She loves math and also enjoys exercising, cooking, and reading. Last year she had taken an early retirement and then she began to feel the Lord's nudge to come back to teaching, and to teach specifically at CCA. We are so grateful to the Lord for His very clear direction with the school board in choosing Mrs. Bolt to be a part of the CCA staff!
The Lord works in ways we cannot predict! Let's welcome back Mrs. Rhonda Hawkinson as our middle and high school science teacher. The Lord called her out of retirement and back to CCA in a different position. We are surely blessed! Thank you to Mrs. Hawkinson for following the Lord's guidance. We are thrilled to have her back for the 2021-2022 school year!
