Our Teaching Team
We are very excited to join with you to LIFT your children up!"
Andrea Kerwin, Core Elementary Lead Teacher
We are so blessed to have Andrea on our team at LIFT! Andrea is organized, goal oriented, and enthusiastic about expanding her own knowledge as well as helping others expand theirs. As an entrepreneur and lifelong learner, she brings a positive energy to our group and helps to implement our vision for education. She is able to get kids involved in learning with games and activities that build brain paths and invite students to explore. They feel competent and smart when in her class, creating the best learning environment for long-term success.
Mathias Daniels, Assistant Teacher, Crew Leader
Mathias, one of my sons, has been with me since the beginning and has worn many hats during his 3 years at LIFT. He is currently the overseer of the high school study room, helping our high school students with their math and writing homework. He is also in charge of recess, keeping an eye on things while the kids shoot baskets or play four square. In addition to being our resident lifter of heavy things, he also provides general office support and completes opening and closing tasks for the day and leads the cleaning crew.
Melissa Roberts, Support Team
We are grateful for Melissa's daily support and willingness to serve. She fills in wherever we need her whether with the young children, the older ones, or cleaning and making copies. Melissa and her husband Al have 7 children, ranging from high school through college.
John Cother, Upper level Math and Science, Science Fair
Mr. Cother leads our High School math and science courses, our middle school science courses, and elementary PE. He is a veteran teacher, bringing over 30 years experience and more years than that of studying the world around us. He and his wife, Connie, enjoy spending time with their children and grandchildren when not teaching or helping others.
Sophia Daniels, Pre-K Lead Teacher
As my daughter and a recent high school graduate with a passion for caring for children and providing them with hands-on learning experiences, Sophia is our much loved pre-k teacher. Students feel very comfortable with her calm presence and love the creative projects and activities the provides for them each day.
Lesley Lambson, High School History and English
Mrs. Lambson leads our weekly high school English, Literature, and US History classes. We are thrilled she is here to share her expertise and enthusiasm for history and teaching with our teens. She is a mother of 4 young children and enjoys being able to teach while still having the time she needs for her family.
Victoria Daniels, Graphics and Media
Victoria, another one of my daughters, is a filmmaker and has brought her talents to use in sharing LIFT with all of you via film such as the video at the top of this page. She also designed our graphics on signs, business cards, and shirts. She is also creating our "how-to" videos coming up for our Core families.
