Assistant Administrator

Professional Biography
I earned a graduate certificate in school leadership and a master's degree in Composition from Liberty University.  I also graduated summa cum laude from Liberty University with a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies, with cognates in education and business and a minor in writing.  I am also an ACSI-certified educator in secondary English/language arts. Previously, I graduated from St. John's School of Business, specializing in accounting and bookkeeping.  I have worked in various capacities in a variety of industries over the years.  That said, my favorite position, prior to joining CCS, was working as the bursar and assistant to the administrator at Baptist Village Christian Academy in East Longmeadow from 2005 until the school closed in 2008. It was there that I felt a distinct calling to work in Christian education. Therefore, I feel very blessed to have joined the CCS family in 2014.

Personal Biography
I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1982. We have three incredible children – a married daughter, Chelsea Dancy, who is employed as a teacher at CCS; a married son who works as a pitching coach with the New York Mets; and another son who plays in the Arizona Diamondbacks minor leagues.  I am also a grandma to a sweet little girl and three handsome little guys! I am also a daylily enthusiast. I currently grow over one hundred different varieties of daylilies, which I love to share! I also love learning, reading, spending time with family, and watching my sons play and coach baseball.

Educational Philosophy
I have always loved learning, and I love God’s truth. Accordingly, I believe working at a Christian school is my ideal vocation. Prior to coming to CCS in 2014, I prayed for the opportunity to work in Christian education once again. Obviously, God answered my prayer and I am so grateful. I love CCS’s goal of partnering with parents in educating and discipling children for God’s ultimate glory.

Favorite Verse
Colossians 2:2-3: "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.“
