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. McMenamin – 2nd Grade teacher (27 Years at LCA)
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.
Mr. Hehmeyer – MS/HS Science teacher (3 Years at LCA)
I enjoy the positive, loving, and fun attitudes of the students and staff. I also love that I have the freedom to build rockets and blow things up in my science labs! I really like that the teachers are given the opportunity to build our own lesson plans around the interests of our students. We can relate the class material to our kids in a way that is most beneficial to them. LCA teaches Science through a biblical worldview; which is absolutely necessary for a logical Christian faith. I did not so much choose to come to LCA, I believe I was led here. The Lord led me here and I couldn’t be happier. Science really strengthened my Christian faith in college. I didn’t go to a Christian University at first, but I began to question everything and took the time to find out answers. It was at this time, that I left my theistic evolutionary worldview behind and turned to creationism for the truth. Amazed by the influx of new information I was learning, I enrolled at Southern California Seminary to earn my Master’s degree in science and religion. It is an absolute joy for me to share all the new scientific, philosophical, and theological knowledge I learned with my students – better shaping and defining their own worldviews. I am also an avid model rocket scientist. My favorite time of the school year is watching my students get enthused about designing and constructing their own rockets. As their teacher, it brings me great satisfaction to watch them encounter challenging obstacles, only to overcome them through their critical thinking skills. I look forward to seeing their faces when they press that launch button at the conclusion of the school year!
Miss Davis – PK4 teacher & PreSchool Director (3 Years at LCA)
I love the God centered environment at LCA and that it is more that a school, but a family! I enjoy teaching at LCA because the team is amazing. I was motivated to become a teacher at LCA because God has been able to use ALL of my talents (not just teaching!). I think my classroom is unique because I try to bring what we are learning to life for the students. This gives them the opportunity to explore new things (touch, see, smell, taste, and hear). I think I personally provide a high energy learning environment for my students. I believe what what sets LCA apart is an overall education. Not only are they getting a strong academic rigor, but they are learning to becoming spiritual leaders as well. I want the students in my class to know they are loved and that learning can be a lot of fun!!
