Ms. Hannah Underwood - K4 Teacher

I received my Bachelor of Social Work and Minor in Parent Education degree at the University of North Alabama. Prior to UNA, I received my Associate in Arts degree in Teacher Education (Pre-Elementary) and Short Term Certificate in Child Development at Northwest Shoals Community College. My passion is to work countless hours helping children reach their goals. Regardless of race, economic status, or hygiene, every child needs a chance to thrive, learn, and grow. My relationship and love for my Savior enables me to have a work ethic that not only involves educating children, but most importantly, leading children “in the path of righteousness.”

Mrs. Shelah Baker - 7th-8th grade Teacher

I graduated from MTSU in 2006 with a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I maintained highly qualified teaching status until it was no longer needed because I had moved from a teaching field to the nuclear energy field! I have experience teaching 2nd and 4th grades, and most recently 7-11th grades. I maintain 2 Timothy 3:16 as my motivation, “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” Not only do I utilize the Word of God in my daily teaching, it is also the basis for all classroom standards!  My goal is to create an

atmosphere where children are encouraged to seek righteousness above all else.

Mrs. Lewey has taught music since 2004 in various settings and is excited to teach music, art and band classes at Legacy Christian Academy.  She is married to Daniel Lewey and they have two children, James and Rebecca.  Mrs. Lewey attended North Stafford High School in Virginia before moving to Norman, Oklahoma.  While at the University of Oklahoma, she earned a BS in musical art and a master's degree in history.  She is passionate about both subjects and enjoys getting to share these interests with her students.
