Upper School Science and Math Teacher
Get to know Upper School Math and Science Teacher, Anna Scherer. Mrs. Scherer graduated from CLS, and uses her experiences to impact her students spiritually, and academically!
What classes and grade level(s) do you teach?
I teach Junior High Math, 8th-grade Science, and 11th and 12th-grade Exercise Science.
What do you love most about CLS?
I love that we are a K-12 school. It’s awesome when we see upper and elementary classes working together, whether academically or athletically. I love working with junior highers and then seeing them grow into high school students. It’s such an amazing journey to witness and be a part of.
Why do you like teaching at CLS?
Since this is the high school that I graduated from, it’s such a privilege to work with students who were in a similar place that I was 10 years ago. I feel that I can relate to many of their situations because I was in the same place as they currently are. I also love working alongside and learning from some of the teachers that I had when I was in school here.
How are faith and learning integrated at CLS?
Being able to pray together when we face trials is one of the greatest gifts that we’ve been given. Having our focus in the classroom always be about our relationship with the Lord is important in preparing these students to live a Christian life outside of this school.
How do you make a spiritual impact on your students?
Praying, encouraging, challenging, and speaking life to the students is the key to making a spiritual impact.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
It’s important to be able to relate to each student, whether through sports, music, questions about their interests, or just asking how their day is going. I feel that if I can have a relationship with a student, the learning experience will be far superior for that student because they know they’re loved for who they are and are cared for.
