My name is Melissa Smith. I was raised from an early age by Christian parents. I graduated from Gospel Baptist Christian School in 2006. After working at a daycare in my teen years, I decided to become a teacher. I attended Florida Baptist College in Tampa to receive my Bachelors degree in elementary education. Working with children is a blessing from God, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I plan to continue teaching for the glory of God in years to come.

I love children! Teaching them is both my passion and my calling, and I get more excited about it every day! I cannot imagine doing anything that would bring me more happiness than teaching. I am really looking forward to another year of teaching at GBCS with the wonderful staff as well as getting to know my students and their families. I know the Lord has great things in store for the upcoming school year, and I am looking forward to it with great expectation.

It is a great privilege to teach my 3rd-4th grade kiddos at GBCS! We enjoy such a loving environment where administration, staff, faculty, parents, and students truly are a family. It means a LOT to know that the folks you’re spending time with have a heart for the Lord and want to accomplish His perfect will. I wouldn’t choose to be anywhere else!

I have always enjoyed school from a young age. It was only natural to continue that passion by teaching. My teaching career started at Estero High School where I taught math for four years. I loved teaching math, but God was calling me to teach at a Gospel Baptist Christian School with 5th & 6th grade students. This is a great honor. This is the time in their lives where they will be reinforcing the character qualities that will shape who they will become. I look forward to assisting students with obtaining attributes that will help them academically and spiritually.

Romans 12:7 talks about the gift of teaching. I received this gift at the age of fourteen. Since then, my passion has been being a servant for the Lord. For my first six years here, I was a “floater” at GBCS. I am truly blessed and excited about overseeing the junior high class. They are my “other” children.
Mrs. Angie Moon, High School

College: BS El. Ed., Bob Jones University
Graduate School: Bob Jones University & Marshall University
My first two years at GBCS were spent teaching 3rd and 4th grades, then I took a year off from teaching when my daughter was born. Over the next four years, I taught Character First at GBCS, and we added a son to our family. I then returned to GBCS to teach 5th and 6th grades for three years. Now I teach senior high school, coordinate our curriculum, and oversee guidance counseling with our high school students. Although we are a very small school compared to most, we are able to offer an amazing variety of courses, extracurricular activities, spiritual training, and excellent academics. GBCS is truly a work of God’s hand.
