DSCA Staff and School Board
When God called me to open a Christian school over 10 years ago, I was humbled. He had been preparing me with a deep love for education and a degree in Business Management from the University of Texas. All He needed was a willing heart. I grew up in this community, and James and I have raised our three boys here, so it is an honor to serve God through training Christ's ambassadors at DSCA.
As a life long resident of Dripping Springs, attending preschool through high school graduation here in DS (class of '99!), I continued on to Southwest Texas State for my English degree. After marring my high school sweetheart, Edgar, in 1998, we built our own home next door to my childhood home and now have three daughters. I have served the DS United Methodist Church in various child care, office and administrative positions since 1998 and I'm excited to see what God has planned, and where my spiritual gifts can best be put to use here at DSCA and in the coming years.
My husband, and I have two daughters, Addison and Tinley. I believe children are each unique in their own way, and should learn in a way to exhibit that. I am excited to fulfill the Lord's plan for my life by teaching your preschool aged children.
I love music and drama as an expression of the creativity that God has placed in all of us. It is one of my great joys to share that with my students and to watch their creativity blossom. In creating, singing, making music, and exploring that creativity, we worship Him with our whole being.
I am a graduate of Texas Tech University, and have been active in church leadership and children's ministry for many years. This will be my second year to teach at DSCA, and I consider it a privilege to build into the hearts and minds of my students from the Word of God, and to prepare them for a lifetime of learning. I am married to Bren, and have two children and four grandchildren. I also serve as Executive Pastor at Hill Country Bible Church Dripping Springs.
Suzanne King is a local Austin resident who grew up in South Austin and graduated with a BFA and teacher's certification from UT Austin. She raised her four children in Dripping Springs and still resides here. She has taught art in settings that range from public and private schools to coops and private lessons for thirty years. She has been a member of the staff at DSCA, off and on for the past 9 years.
Art is a continued thread of passion in her life as she is a painter herself and is inspired to teach others the powerful way that the Holy Spirit communicates through the creative process.
My husband and I have two children and raising them has taught us both so much. I believe that strength, agility, and endurance provide powerful tools for anyone’s faith walk. My mission is to guide children to let their light for God shine by teaching them to be stewards of their own physical fitness so they may experience the adventurous and unique life God has in store for each of them.
I've been blessed to have been working with students since 1954. The Lord has allowed me to teach the subject content as well as the spiritual from His guidance. I have taught in various places and in different types of schools in the U.S. and overseas.
