Faculty and Staff

One of the things that sets Liberty Christian Academy apart is our faculty and staff.  They provide the living curriculum for the students in and out of the classroom.  Read some of the stories from our dedicated faculty and staff.

Mrs. Olajimbiti – Athletic Director  
I’m the Athletic Director at LCA.  I took this position because I love sports and I’m a former coach.  The environment of a Christian School was enticing to me because I wanted my kids to be in Christian Education.  What I love about LCA?  I love the people.  The students are why I got into coaching many years ago because it allows me to build relationships with them and point them to Christ, specifically in the realm of athletics.   LCA is a solid Christian School with great leadership and people.  LCA students are set apart from other students because of their desire to be in Christian Education.  They are in all different walks of life in terms of where they are spiritually, and the majority of them desire to honestly pursue a relationship with Christ.
I want to build a culture here at LCA and leave the athletic department and programs better off than when I arrive.  I truly want these student-athletes to have the best experience while they are in school.  A fun fact about me is that I used to be an avid poetry writer…both my brother and sister-in-law are published authors.



Mrs. Lawhead – MS Science Teacher 

I teach 6th grade Bible, 6th grade Science, 7th grade Life Science and 8th grade Earth Science at LCA!  One of the many things I love about LCA is the curriculum that incorporates the Bible in all subjects.  I love the positive atmosphere and the Christ-centered environment.  I have really enjoyed teaching here and getting to know the students and the staff.  I love teaching and want to instill students with the motivation to learn.  I love hands-on learning projects and activities in the classroom. The students at LCA are set apart by their character and their love and concern for others.  I felt led to teach kids and be a light of encouragement for them.  LCA is a great school, not only to learn, but also to develop students’ strong character by learning Christian ethics and values each day.  Each student is loved, encouraged, guided and challenged toward becoming Godly young adults. I am so thankful that God led our family here and I have the opportunity to be a part of this school.

Mrs. Ruiz – 5th Grade Teacher 

I teach 5th grade at LCA!  What I love about LCA is the Christ-centered atmosphere and am so excited that I was led here to teach.  I bring the gift of a sense of humor to the classroom.  I love to laugh with my students and have so much fun while learning!  Students at LCA are set apart by their kindness and willingness to learn.  I want students to know that their teachers love them and want to chose joy in every stage of life!  I have the best co-teacher in the world – Mrs. McCoy.



Mrs. McMenamin – 1st/2nd Grade teacher 
I love so many things about LCA.  One of the things that stands out to me the most is that we are family!  We cry together, laugh together, we share one another’s burdens, and we pray together.  I am honored to be a part of the LCA mission.  I love the students and that I get to share my testimony and Jesus with them everyday.  I didn’t think I wanted to be a teacher, but here I am 26 years later and loving teaching and “my kids!”  I use many creative and hands-on learning techniques to prepare fun lessons.  I use my love of learning to spur students to be life-long learners, to love Jesus, to think creatively, and to always follow God’s will.  My main desire is that the students come to know Jesus as their personal Savior and that they are on HIS Honor Roll.  I hope they remember that I challenged them, that I pray for them, and that Jesus and I always love them.


Mrs. Erskine – 4th Grade teacher 
I love working in a Christian environment and teaching Heritage Studies and Ohio History.  I enjoy History and how we get to focus on all the amazing events of the past.  I enjoy bringing new ideas and new, creative ways to accomplish learning in the classroom.  LCA students are surrounded by teachers/staff who have a love for the Lord.  The students are looking through everything with a Biblical lens.  I want my students to know that I first have a love for God and that it’s okay to make mistakes, that we will learn from them and grow.  I want them to know that kindness is a two-way street…we show kindness and in turn others show kindness to us.  Most of all, I want them to know that I love them too!   My most fun fact is that I LOVE watching football games!
