"Learning becomes so much more fulfilling when we are able to look to the Creator and see who He made us to be. We are able to see our job in the world and even into eternity. Each day when I come to school, I am reminded how much God loves me. God shines through the students. I see Him in their words, actions, and even in their laughing and realize the value of a quality, Christian education. This is a place where children are able to question, but are also able to seek God. This is a place where the parents, teachers, and reliable sources are able to help students find and create answers. This is a place where students receive quality, well-rounded education. Belleville Mennonite School keeps me grounded as a teacher and reminds me of what my job is as a teacher and as a Christian."
