Hello, my name is Linda Harris. This is my 12th year at San Angelo Christian Academy, and I hope for many more! I am currently teaching high school History. I taught 2nd grade in the public school system before discovering the Academy. What a blessing it has been! I encourage anyone looking for a superior education to check out our school. Our smaller numbers allow us to nurture each child as an individual. God is very much alive and active at our school and in the lives of our teachers.
Marsha Tharp teaches Science. The focus for the science department is to develop an understanding that God is the Creator and sustainer of the universe while establishing foundational science facts and skills. We hope to inspire a curiosity, wonder, and appreciation of God's creation as we show how science integrates into the student's everyday life. We incorporate problemsolving techniques and scientific inquiry in life, earth, physical, chemical, space, and environmental sciences. Teaching technology concepts and robotics engineering classes are part of our fun-filled day.
My name is Nicole Thornton. I am blessed to be teaching PE, Geometry, and 6th grade English this year at SACA. I am the Athletic Director and coach volleyball, basketball, and track. I have a degree in Elementary Education from Lubbock Christian University and a Masters in Special Education from Abilene Christian University. I worked in the public schools in Lubbock, TX and in Hawley, TX. In between those two jobs, I was blessed to be able to stay at home with my two children. They both get to come to school with me every day. My goal for this year is to get the kids to work hard and have fun while doing it!
My name is Christy Kemp. As of December, 2010, I am a certified teacher with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. After teaching for two and one-half years in the pre-kindergarten class at SACA, I decided that I loved teaching. As a result, I attended Angelo State University to finish college. I feel very fortunate to be employed at SACA. I have taught secondary students for 6 years.
I have an eleventh grader who attends the Academy, and my husband is manager of San Angelo State Park.
I love being with children! My goal is not only to model Christian attitudes and behaviors in my class, but to encourage students to become educated agents for God!
Hello! My name is Christie Bird. I teach secondary Bible, Child Development, and 5th grade study skills. I absolutely love this ministry that God has allowed me to be a part of! I have been married for 23 years and have 3 children. Two of them attend SACA and our oldest is a student at Lubbock Christian University. I am a registered nurse with over 16 years of experience in the maternal child field. I have recently committed to working at SACA full time. I am excited to be even more a part of this amazing school! I truly believe that San Angelo Christian Academy offers the best education and environment in town! I encourage you to give your child the gift of Christian education.
My name is Dawna Scott. I am excited about beginning my 7th year of teaching at San Angelo Christian Academy. I am truly blessed! I have had the opportunity to teach 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades at the Academy. This year I will be teaching multiple grade levels of English and Social Studies in grades 5th-8th along with Robotics and Study Skills in our secondary.
My husband and I have 3 children attending the academy. We consider our children's spiritual welfare to be our top priority and look for the best education to fit right in line with those beliefs. SACA helps us meet both of those goals, and we are so pleased with all that SACA has to offer.
I hope that you will consider being a part of our wonderful family here at SACA!
