A Cheerful Greeting!
We are happy to welcome Susan Bender to The Christ School team! Susan joins us this year as our afternoon front desk receptionist. Susan is the mom of TCS 1st grade Lion, Liam, and 23 year old Joshua. She has been married for 10 years to Garreth, who works for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. “Liam describes me well when he tells everyone that ‘my mom lives on coffee and chocolate,’” Susan smiles. “I love to go to Anna Maria Island to have some beach time with my family. We also enjoy camping,” she says.
“When I learned about the receptionist position, I knew right away that I wanted to fill the role,” says Susan. “Everyone here is so friendly and happy.”
“I really enjoy working at the front desk,” Susan continues. “The kids are happy to be here. Being able to see the everyday happenings at the school is so much fun. I loved The Christ School before but seeing how things go on a day to day basis makes me love TCS even more! The best part of my job is getting to see my son throughout the day. He blows me kisses and gives me air hugs from the hallway. It is something I will cherish forever.”
“I am happy that Liam is at TCS. I want him to make life-long friendships here, and for TCS to help him mature spiritually, physically and academically,” says Susan.
Susan shares her favorite Bible verse: John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. “This verse reminds me of my dad,” She says.
