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!

Mrs. Windy Rutter, Fifth and Sixth Grades

Certification: Professional Teaching Certificate, Florida Dept. of Ed.

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

Graduate School: Bob Jones University & Marshall University

Certification: AACS

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.
