Upper School Administrative Assistant
Get to know Bernice Fraser, Upper School Administrative Assistant. Mrs. Fraser loves getting the opportunity to use her nurturing spirit to pour into students and help them develop Christian character!
What is your position at CLS?
I work in the Upper School Office.
What do you love most about CLS?
I love almost everything. The students, the staff, my boss, my job, that we can pray, but most of all that this is a Christian environment. I have worked in non-Christian places and it’s vastly different.
Why do you like working at CLS?
I wear different “hats” in working with staff and the students. At times I’m the admin assistant, and sometimes I extend myself in the role of a “mom” to the students, depending on the situation. I like that as staff, we all try to be role models for the students to enable them to be well-rounded people when they step out of CLS.
How are faith and learning integrated at CLS?
We focus on praying with students, helping them up when they stumble, and pointing students to Christ to enable spiritual growth.
How do you make a spiritual impact on the students?
I do this by treating them with fairness, kindness, love, and respect; and showing grace and mercy. I look for teachable moments.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
My life growing up was not in a Christian home. I brought myself some hard times unnecessarily due to that. My own experiences help me look out for our young people, and to help keep them on a good path. I’m a nurturer and sometimes students need that.
What sets CLS students apart from other students?
The standard that is set here sets the tone. Students are taught about serving and loving others in addition to their academics. They’re not perfect students, but we definitely have teaching moments with them. Many students have a relationship with the Lord and that makes a big difference.
