Our Upper School science classes have two new faces; Mark Fischer and John Redelsheimer.
Mark Fischer is teaching our middle school science classes. Mark brings over 20 years of teaching experience, with 16 years of middle school science. A Pittsburgh, PA native, Mark received his BS in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and holds teaching certification for grades 1-6, 6-8, and science grades 4-9.
The Fischer family moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina in 2021. Mark, and his wife Rachel, and their three active boys have been enjoying the NC weather and going to the beach. Together, these teachers bring decades of experience and a desire to further develop our Science department. Most importantly, Mark and John both look forward to how God will use them to impact our students for Christ.
“Teaching kids that God and Science are always interacting is very exciting!” - Mark Fischer
John Redelsheimer is teaching our high school science classes. He continued his education at St. Thomas University, receiving a Master’s degree in Education. He has taught high school science for 28 years. In the 2019-2020 school year, he taught abroad in Zarqa, Jordan.
The Redelsheimer family came to North Carolina in 2020 when they returned from teaching overseas. John and his wife Courtney have five children. Since moving to Winston-Salem, John has been exploring the city on his bike, a favorite pastime of his.
“I pray that students would encounter Jesus and would have a personal relationship with Him” - John Redelsheimer
Because of generous donations to the school, both the middle and high school science labs will receive updated equipment and new technology, allowing us to improve our science curriculum overall. We continue to stand in awe of how God is working on behalf of our school. Not only has He sent us two highly qualified teachers, but He has equipped us to serve our students well.
