Meet Brooke VanCanneyt

When did I begin working at Christ the King:
I began my journey at CTK in 2019.

The best thing about CTK is:

My first day teaching, I immediately noticed students' passion for worshipping God during our morning devotions. I love how everyone is actively involved in growing their Faith in Christ and that we are at a school where we have the ability to do so with abandon.

Educational Background:

    • B.A. in Foreign Language and Literature; University of Memphis, 2014
    • M.Ed. in Elementary Education; Northern Arizona University, 2018

Favorite Bible verse/quote:  

"I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2


If I weren't doing what I do today, I would be an:  

author or book editor


What "lesson from mom" do I still live by today:  

"Take Jesus with you."


If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, it would be:

I would bring a suitcase full of books to a remote island, and enjoy my time on the beach with uninterrupted reading. 


Favorite movie of all time:  

I love any Marvel movie and could rewatch them over and over again. If I am feeling more sentimental, my favorite movie would be The Lion King. If we're talking TV, 100% The Office is my top choice. 

Favorite sports team:

I am not a huge sports fan, but I have to support my Memphis Tigers!


Favorite food/restaurant:

If I am craving a burger, Huey's is definitely my number one choice. Muddy's Prozac cupcake is also a top contender.

Best concert I've ever attended:  

That is a hard choice! I love music and the experience that a concert brings; it would have to be a tie between the Avett Brothers and N'sync.


If I could learn to do anything, it would be:  

I would love to learn how to play the piano. I would also love to learn another language. 


What are you most proud of:

I am incredibly proud of my family and the educational goals that we have set for ourselves and have achieved.
