Mrs. Kristin Alexander
Mrs. Alexander's Class
I will be your child's second grade teacher for the upcoming school year! I look forward to what God has in store for us this year. I know that we will accomplish many great things working together with your child. I am new to Dillon Christian School so I wanted to take it upon myself to introduce who I am and to tell you some things about me. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me. My name is Mrs. Alexander and I am from Florence, SC. I am married to Cody Alexander and together we have two precious kitty cats and one BIG- German Shepherd dog (who just so happens to think she is a puppy). I recently graduated from Francis Marion University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am a member of Pyerian Baptist Church, and I really could not ask for a better church family.
I found the Lord at a very young age. I was 13 years old when I felt God knock on my heart's door at Pyerian Baptist Church. My life has not been the same since. I feel lucky because I never had to go through a life without Jesus. I was lucky to find him so young. That is what we hope for our students here at Dillon Christian School. We want to introduce Christ through our creative curriculum in hopes that students will find the Lord in their own way and develop true and meaningful relationships with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
My favorite verse of scripture comes from Deuteronomy 6:5-7
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
