Megan's favorite Bible verse is I Timothy 4:7-8- "Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales, but rather train yourselves to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness holds value for all things, both the present life and the life to come."
Why I love my job:
I love my role as the Principal of the Upper School because it gives me the opportunity to support our faculty and staff, our students, and our families. I am so grateful to serve with some of the brightest and most gifted educators around. We love the chance to speak truth into the hearts and minds of our students everyday. The partnership we have with parents is one of the greatest blessings in the NCCS community.
Golden Moment at NCCS:
As a principal, one of the highlights is when a student comes back to say thank you. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to deal with a variety of discipline situations that come up when working with middle and upper school students. My goal has always been to focus on the "disciple" part of discipline. It is very exciting when a student realizes that and shows their gratitude for the time that was spent talking with them and helping them learn through a "teachable moment".
Why I work at NCCS:
I work at NCCS because I can't imagine doing anything else. I genuinely love driving into the parking lot every morning, excited about what God has in store for us that day. Our faculty, staff, and students are a blast to be around and it is my pleasure to serve them each and every day.
