Jeanette is a lifelong Memphian and has deep connections with Christ the King Lutheran School. She is currently in the midst of her 26th year at CTK. Before she began teaching, Jeanette sent her children to CTK school where they attended from kindergarten through 8th grade. Jeanette was drawn to teaching because she is a people person and realized that teaching “is the job that God wanted me to do.” Jeanette explained that after being introduced to the CTK community she was hooked, “Christ the King,” She explained, “is a place you want to stay.”
At the school, Jeanette teaches the three-year old preschoolers where she uses a play-based learning curriculum and says that “Preschool children need to explore and move around as they learn.” Her Christ-centered curriculum is designed to teach her students leadership, independence, and social skills, and wants her students to realize, “they can grow up to be anything they want to be”.
Jeanette wants others to know that Christ the King Lutheran School is a wonderful place for their child to receive a great education, because it is a place where teachers care, not just about every child in their class, but every family as well. “CTK is all about family!”
