Sharon Lotz, the junior high homeroom teacher, came to education through the back door. Graduating from the University of Washington with a Bachelor’s degree in nursing, she worked as an RN before landing on the mission field in Brazil as a teacher in junior high and high school. Wanting to be fully trained in education, she obtained her Master’s in Education at Washington State University. Following this, she moved to Nebraska, became the Director of Nursing at Norfolk Family Medicine and taught at Keystone Christian Academy part-time. In 2004, she transitioned to Keystone Christian Academy full-time as the administrator and junior high homeroom teacher.
Currently, Sharon’s passion includes helping students to find their voice, think deeply about social issues, and to academically excel to their potential. She believes that Christian education is a training tool to influence “change agents” in a generation where Christian values seem to be increasingly minimized. Sharon is full-heartedly dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence, a Biblical worldview, and character development.
