My name is Emily Fiveash and I am the new Middle School Counselor, Coordinator of the Middle and High School ARC program, and I also teach sixth grade literature. While I am a new faculty member this year, I am not new to Berean Christian School or to the profession. I have been blessed to be a part of the Berean community as a parent after transferring my children here two years ago. My husband and I have been happy with the academic rigor, the spiritual focus, the caring faculty and the social climate of the school. God has blessed me with a variety of opportunities throughout my career as we moved several times for my husband’s education and career. I have taught in a Christian school, a rural elementary school, a large suburban high school, and served as a school counselor in two urban high schools as well as a middle school. I also was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom and a homeschool mother for a season. Each setting was used by God to shape, mold and prepare me for this new position at Berean.
As I began the conversations to join the Berean staff, my only hesitation was that the beauty I saw in Berean from the outside, as a parent, would fade. I am so grateful to say that Berean is just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Is the school perfect? No, as nothing is. However, the spiritual walk and the passion for the lives of Berean’s students is real and genuine. I am so humbled and blessed to be part of the faculty and so grateful to God for the people who are pouring in to the lives of my children and all the other children at Berean.
