Hello students and families of FBCS,
I am Coach (Rachel) Kring and I am the new physical education teacher for First Baptist Christian School. I will be teaching grades K – 6 as well as the 4 year-olds in the Wee Care. I grew up in Clinton Township, Michigan, USA which is about 30 miles Northeast of Detroit. I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University, located in Illinois, USA, in December 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
From 2010 – 2015, I taught elementary physical education (grades K – 5) and world/American history (grades 6 – 8) at Warren Woods Christian School in Warren, MI. This was a great experience for me to learn the craft of teaching and refine my skills.
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I love that I have the opportunity to connect with students every day, not only on an academic/sports level but on a spiritual level as well by proclaiming the love of Christ. Teaching is a God-given passion in my life and I want to continue to use that gift to bless and minister to all of my students. It is a joy and a privilege to make a difference in their lives.
I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing various sports and board games. My favorite sports are volleyball and football (soccer). I also enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures.
I am looking forward to this school year and getting to know all the students of FBCS!
