Mrs. Lynette Cave (LD teacher)

Mrs. Lynette Cave received Jesus as her Savior 5 days after turning six, just 6 months after her mom and dad received Christ. The strong influence of a faithful Christian home, regular church attendance, and Christian school education grounded Mrs. Cave in her faith as a young lady. With a passion to teach, Mrs. Cave received her teacher training from Piedmont Baptist College, Salem College (BS & BA Elem Ed), and Gardner-Webb University (MS Elem Ed). Between undergraduate and master’s degrees, Mrs. Cave began a family and also taught fifth grade at Copeland Elementary School for five years. When it was time for her children to attend school, Bro. & Mrs. Cave chose CCS in King because, in her words, “We believed, then and now, that Calvary is the best option for our family.” Later, as we considered her for a vacant 6th grade teaching position, her former principal recommended her with these words: “She is the best - hire her!” We are grateful to the Lord for leading Mrs. Cave to teach 6th grade at CCS. “I was a ‘CCS Mom’ for 6 years, but I am thrilled to now also be a CCS teacher. I love teaching and learning and sharing my excitement for learning with my students at CCS.”   (Email)

Foote worked in evangelism with his father Leon Foote for 16 years until the Lord called him to CCS in 2001 to teach 5th grade. In addition to his outstanding work as 5th grade teacher, John adds something quite extraordinary to our program with his Gospel Magic, puppets, ventriloquism, and professional clowning. "I have been in more than 50 different Christian schools while in evangelism. CCS in King is clearly the best school that I have ever been a part of."   (Email)

Miss Amanda Smith (3rd Grade)

Miss Smith was raised in a Christian home (her dad was her pastor), and she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of five. To provide her with a Christian education her parents homeschooled her from K thru 12th grade. While in high school, during teen camp she surrendered her life to the Lord for full time service. After high school she attended and graduated with high marks from West Coast Baptist College, with a Bachelor's Degree majoring in Elementary education. Miss Smith completed her student teaching right here at CCS in King, and it was during this time that  the Lord showed her that this is where He wants her to serve. "I am thankful for the Christian education that I received growing up. Now the Lord has given me the privilege to teach here at CCS where Christ is at the center! It is going to be a great year and I am excited to see how the Lord is going to work in the life of each student this year!" (Email)

Mrs. Foote and her husband John spend every summer traveling with Evangelist Leon Foote (John's father) conducting Vacation Bible Schools and literally "clowning" around. "I love teaching at CCS. It is such a thrill to educate children with so much potential for the Lord. It's exciting to watch them grow closer to reaching that potential every day."  (Email)

Miss Noell Auten (1st Grade)

Miss Auten's father had the joy to lead his little girl to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ when she was 6 years old. All through her childhood and teen years Miss Auten longed to be a teacher some day, and throughout junior and senior high she was heavily involved in the children's ministries of her church. While pursuing an elementary education degree at Pensacola Christian College, the Lord used a peer teaching experience to confirm to her that He was indeed calling her to be a Christian school teacher. After graduating from college in 2011, Miss Auten taught in two other Christian schools before joining the Calvary family to teach 1st grade. "I'm so glad I surrendered to God's call to become a teacher when I was a teenager, and now His call to teach here at CCS. Calvary very quickly felt like home and became another family for me. I cannot wait to see what God has planned for my 1st grade students in the upcoming year."

Mrs. Marilyn Comstock (K5 and Fine Arts Director)

Mrs. Comstock trusted the Lord as her Savior in 1974, and a year later she started teaching a 5-year-old Sunday School class. She has been teaching children in churches ever since. The Lord gave Mrs. Comstock the talent and opportunity to write many Vacation Bible School programs and teach them in American churches and in Paraguay and S. Africa. Mrs. Comstock taught K4 here at CCS in King for 15 years and was also our Fine Arts Director for several years. While FA director she wrote and directed American Heritage Fine Arts Programs for our elementary grades and directed several High School dramas. The Lord led Mrs. Comstock away for a couple of years, but brought her back to teach K5 in 2017.  Along with teaching the 5-year-old Kindergarten class at CCS, Mrs. Comstock also now teaches an Early Childhood class at Calvary Baptist Bible College in King (“How to Teach the Bible to Pre-schoolers”). “I love teaching the children at CCS, and I know the Lord has led me to return.” (Email)

Mrs. Sandra Weaver (K4)

Mrs. Weaver graduated from Appalachian State University in 1989. After college she worked as the sales manager and marketing director for a Sleep Inn, at the YMCA’s Child Watch and Day care programs, and as K4 assistant at North Cove Elementary School. Mrs. Weaver received Christ as her personal Savior in 1995 during a service preached by our former pastor, Dr. Roger Baker. Mrs. Weaver has no doubt that the Lord opened up this opportunity for her to serve Him at Calvary. “The Lord impressed a strong desire on my heart to help mothers who would need childcare because of their occupations. I love to take care of and love on little children. To be able to take care of them, teach them how to read and write, and teach them about Jesus all at the same time is wonderful. That’s how I know that teaching K4 at Calvary is exactly where the Lord wants me to be.” We are pleased and blessed that the Lord brought Mrs. Weaver to Calvary to teach a combined 3 / 4 year old class in 2011, where He wonderfully prepared her for the primary K4 teaching position that she know holds at CCS.   (Email)
