WHY I AM TEACHING AT THE KING’S SCHOOL

  • "I truly believe our Lord should be in everything we do.  Education that builds on the principles our Lord has given us should be taught/referenced in every subject we teach our children.  The King’s School applies this in and out of the classroom and I want to be a part of this as a faithful servant of our Heavely Father.  I feel The King’s School is the hope of our educational system."

FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE

  • Romans 1:12 
"I want us to help each other with the faith we have.  Your faith will help me, and my faith will help you."
  • Mark 9:23 "Anything is possible if a person believes."

I am married to a wonderful man, Peter Voorhis.  We have 3 sons, Nevin, Jack and Timothy.  We have a great dog named Ribsy.  One of our children is a graduate of The King’s School.
