Upper School Science Teacher
Get to know 7th and 8th-grade teacher Becca Grasty! During her first year at CLS, Miss Grasty has loved the opportunities to talk with her students about how Jesus is present in all areas of their lives.
What classes and grade level(s) do you teach?
I teach 7th Grade Life Science and 8th Grade Language Arts.
What do you love most about CLS?
I love that I am able to have conversations with students about more than academics. I am able to talk to them about who God is to them and the awesome things that He is doing in their lives.
Why do you like teaching at CLS?
I like the Christian atmosphere that CLS offers. I am able to teach science from a Christian perspective and show my students how awesome God’s creation is.
How are faith and learning integrated at CLS?
In science, I get the ability to bring in faith almost every day. I am able to teach my students about everything from the intricacy of the interworking of cells to things of a larger scale, like plants and animals. I love being able to see them realize how big our God is in order to be able to create everything that He has given us.
How do you make a spiritual impact on your students?
I try to make a spiritual impact on my students by showing interest in them and always being willing to listen. I try and show them the love of Jesus day in and day out in my classroom and in the halls.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
I love trying to create different hands-on learning experiences for my students. Many students have a hard time learning through pen and paper and these help them to be able to connect to their learning in a different way. I also try to relate what we are learning to their lives in order to help them remember better what it is we are learning.
What sets CLS students apart from other students?
When I think about our students, I think about students who are compassionate, loving, and caring in all that they say and do. They not only put great effort into their academics, but they also put forth that effort into their friendships, sports teams, family, and churches. I love seeing our students love others and continue to grow to be more and more like Jesus every day.
