Mrs. Chelsea Dancy
Secondary History, Literature, and Worldview & Drama Director
From a young age, I had a passion for Christian education and sharing Christ. My passion began and my life changed in fifth grade when I attended Baptist Village Christian Academy. I had a teacher share her life story and her commitment to Christ. This is when I knew that I wanted to teach and inspire my students to have a passion for Christ. After high school, I attended Westfield State University, where I graduated magna cum laude in 2012 with a BA in History and Secondary Education, with certifications in the fifth through eighth grades and the ninth through twelfth grades. I began teaching at Community Christian School in 2011. I have also privately tutored for the past ten years and worked as a swim instructor for nine years.
I married my wonderful husband, Christian, in 2013. We have two children--a boy, Carsten, and a little girl, Elizabeth. I have been a member of First Baptist Church in East Longmeadow for the past sixteen years. I have been involved in the nursery ministry for the past ten years.
I love that I get to share my faith with my students. I am so blessed to have a job at a Christian school where I can speak truth into my students’ lives. I do my best to get to know each student personally so I that can effectively meet his or her individual needs in the classroom.
