Faculty and Staff

Administrative – The responsibility of the school’s daily operation is a delegated function of the acting administrator, who carries out and effects school policies. 

 

Teachers – The training and instruction of all students is the responsibility of the teachers. 

 

Parents Involvement – We believe that parents are the first line educators of their children. We seek to work together with parents in training up their children. Parents are encouraged to volunteer time, upon administrative approval, to assist in the classroom or facilitate extra curricular activities. We are phasing in a program of mandatory parent volunteers in order to increase chances of student success, and to help keep the operational costs of the school low and in turn passing the savings on in the form of lower tuition. 

 

Lake Almanor Christian School Board – Board members are approved by the church elders and are Christian parents, educators, and community members. The school board will oversee school policies, philosophies, curriculum choices, future direction and staffing. 

 


  • grandpa howe - principal/administrator

    Nearly two years ago, my wife Barbara and I volunteered to participate as staff at an emerging Christian school in Malaysia, where I was blessed to serve as Principal. Upon our return and looking around the our country today, especially in our classrooms, every Christian should wonder where the Christian viewpoint, which shared our culture up until several decades ago, has disappeared to. Although the answers may vary it, breaks my heart to realize US education is running down the same slippery slope of Old Testament Israel. This is the fundamental reason I was glad to submit my application to be Principal here at Lake Almanor Christian School. It is an effort worth all our time and energy!

  • mrs. rachel gibson - k-1 classroom aide


  • mrs. cecilia allin - 2-4th grade teacher

    I am very blessed to be able to teach at Lake Almanor Christian School this year.  This school really allows teachers to be able to provide so much enrichment and one on one time with students, and it creates creative and engaging learning.  


    I was inspired by my mother, who is also a teacher, to pursue a teaching credential.  I worked in the business sector for many years, but I knew I wanted to work with children.  I went back to school to receive my Masters in Education, and I currently hold several credentials in Multiple Subject, English, and Business. I taught at Westwood Unified School District for the past four years, and my husband and I also own the local coffee shop in town, Blue Ox Coffee.  Our shop was inspired by students in Westwood who did not have access to free WIFI or a place to study after school hours. Teaching has truly been the most fulfilling job I could have, and I am grateful for such a rare opportunity to teach at a school with small class sizes, engaged students and parents, and a love for Christ.

  • mrs. Lee Eckert Librarian

    Mrs. Lee Eckert truly enjoys working with LACS students and staff along with Julie Outland and now winter seasonal - Deanna Welsh. They work together as a team toward the students’ library knowledge and enjoyment of reading along with some history knowledge. Mrs. Eckert is a retired School Librarian – mostly at Chester Jr/Sr High School and a couple of semesters with a split day at CHS & CES. Out PTFA has become so supportive of the library which benefits directly and even not so directly, helping our purchase of book supplies, and we appreciate them so much. The librarians are open to parent’s involvement such as reading one of our books for a class or sharing a positive memory of a library experience. Thank you for your encouragement and support for the only private school library in the area.

  • mrs. Julie Outland

    Julie Outland is one of your friendly volunteer librarians, with Lee Eckert, at the Lake Almanor Christian School library – up the steep stairway to heaven, above the kitchen.  They catalogue books on the computer and in the library.   They read stories to school children, teach them library skills, and check out books.  They keep the library cheery, decorated and welcoming to students.
