Meet The Principal & Staff

Robin P. Roberts - Pastor & Principal

Pastor Roberts is teaching the 7th and 8th graders this 2019-2020 school year; while also teaching science and social studies for a variety of levels. These interactive science and social studies classes bring life and dimension enhancing the students understanding of the material they are reading and learning. Pastor Roberts also tutors math, runs sound, preaches chapel, counsels students, keeps peace among the masses and directs the school on a daily basis; and did we mention Coach! Thank God for a good P.E. Coach! Oh the many hats he wears on a daily basis, and they all make everyone's day a little brighter.

Debbie Roberts - Senior Administrator

Debbie is teaching High School! This school year is packed with Freshman students coming up through CLA. Debbie's focus this year will be to creatively assist each student in the direction of education, preparing them for the years to come and their future, isolating their potential, growing their gifts and talents, and helping each one achieve the impossible.

Joy Hay - Teacher

Joy is teaching the 5th and 6th graders this year. Joy comes with over 16 years teaching experience in the ACE cirriculum and Christian Education environment. Joy started in Christian Education at the Marion Christian Academy in Ocala, Fl. until that school closed and has been here at CLA for over 13 years. In addition to teaching school, Joy has taught Sunday School and is currently teaching Children's Church on Wednesday nights. It is obvious that Joy has a gift of leading, teaching, directing and guiding the minds of learning in children.

Barbara Mark - Teacher

Barbara is meeting a need in a variety of ways this year at CLA. Instead of having an assigned class, Barbara has education and training that CLA is putting to use in assisting with students who might have developmental differences enabling our students to better excel and meet thier goals. Barbara has work at CLA since 2008, she was a ESE Aide in the public school system, and is excellent at guiding the students in achieving the best. She is greatly loved by them all.

Dana Slaughter - Teacher

Dana is joining CLA this year to teach our 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders. Dana has been teaching in the public school system, but has felt drawn to be back in Christian Education. We are so excited to have her back with us, and look forward to the skill, knowledge, and experience she will bring into these young minds, at such a critical stage of learning. We are thankful to have Dana back with us.

Jaida Cooper - Teacher

Jaida is our Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher. Having attended and graduated from CLA, Jaida has a special understanding of what it takes to prepare our youngest students for self-paced learning. She teaches them the phonics and builds an exceptional base of understanding to prepare them for reading; sight, sound, pronounciation, etc..... This is Jaida's second year with K-5 and 1st grade students; and we are excited to see what evolves in the minds of our new group as they develop this year.

Jennifer Barrios - Spanish Teacher

Jennifer is our amazing Spanish teacher. Via our distant learning/teaching program, CLA has access to a full time professional spanish teacher! Every student at CLA is taught a foreign language - Spanish. Jennifer comes to us live every day from Guatemala and because of Jennifer's expertise we have everything from beginning to advance Spanish classes. Just so you know, Jennifer is not new to CLA, she was one of the original students; a perfect example of the success of CLA, Christian education and the effects it can have on your life.

Sandra King - Administrator Assistant (Secretary)

Sandra joined us last year as our school secretary. Anything you need as a parent can be directed her way. If Sandra doesn't have the answer, she will find out and get back to you. She is located in the out-side office. Before entering the school, you must always check in at the office and Sandra will be available to assist in anyway possible. Any delivery for the school (i.e., supplies, lunches, forgotten backpacks, snacks, fundraisers, medicines, notes, etc.....) should all go through the out-side office. This keeps the class-room interruptions limited, teachers focused, students learning, and helps the school stay organized.
