What do you love about Zeeland Christian?
"I have loved the united goal of loving the Lord and raising up children in His ways."
Why are you passionate about Christian Education?
"I believe teachers team with parents to raise up children in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6), and with shared beliefs in Jesus as Savior parents can know that the teachers are guiding their children in every subject area through the lens of Scripture and Godly discernment."
What do you want others to know about you?
"I am formerly known as Miss L. and newly known as Mrs. Price! In Spanish, I'll continue to be called Profe, which is another word for Maestra. Most importantly I love the Lord, seek to follow His ways, and am passionate about leading children to understand who they are in Christ and to seek Him. I am married to a wonderful Oklahoman, Ron, who shares the same beliefs. Throughout my years of teaching, I have loved spending extra time with my students talking, laughing, giving them advice, and continuing a connection with those who come back to visit years after they were in my classroom. Outside of educating my students, Ron and I love to experience new towns, states, and countries. We also love to read, stay active, coach 5th-6th-grade football(Ron) and high school pole vault(Carla). We love spending time with our out-of-town families and visit them whenever we can."
One life lesson your students have taught you:
"It's more fun to keep laughing at silly things that most adults don't think are funny. :)"
