Introducing our newest middle school teacher at NCS.
We're introducing new staff members who have joined our team at Nanaimo Christian School. Help us give them a warm welcome!
Meet Mrs. Jamie Schaap! Here are 7 things you need to know about her.
1) New position at NCS
Middle school teacher (remote learning)
2) Before coming to NCS
I am a recent graduate from VIU's Education Program and this is my first ever job! (But, shhh don't tell my students!!)
3) Favorite thing about teaching
I love being a teacher because I get to build relationships with students! Getting to know the kids is the best part of my day!
4) If I were a crayon ...
I would be yellow because it is a very happy colour and it always makes me smile.
5) Secret talent or party trick
Hmmmm.... I'm not one given to party tricks. But I am a really fast reader. I got through 3 novels in one week this summer.
Reading! Obviously. I also enjoy spending time outdoors with loved ones. There's nothing like a hike in the woods or a paddle on the water with my family.
7) God has been teaching me
One thing God has been teaching me this year is to TRUST. Even when things are chaotic and not going how I would like I need to just rest in the knowledge that He is in control and not me.
