Marcy was raised in a very loving, moral home as a Roman Catholic, and she realized from a very young age that she was a sinner. It wasn't until after her late husband was saved that Marcy realized that Jesus died for her personally and not just to pay the price for the sins of the whole world. Since that time, God has been teaching her and using her to teach others. Marcy has 4 children, all of whom were privileged to attend Bethel Baptist Christian School/Baptist Regional School from Kindergarten through 12th grade. She is a member of Bethel Baptist Church.

At 5 years old, Darla received Christ as her Savior, but it was not until high school that she truly began to understand acceptance and freedom in grace.

Madison attended a private Christian school from 4th to 12th grade and is excited to be on the other end now as a teacher. She is thankful to be a part of the BRS community and to educate students in a Christ-centered environment. In addition to math, Madi also loves reading, traveling, trying new foods, and spending time with her family. One verse that encourages Madi is Philippians 3:12, "Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own."
Matthew is joining the BRS community this year as the music teacher. He grew up in a public school setting, spending most of his time in the choir room and being part of musical productions. Matt switched to a Christian education when he attended college at Cairn University, and he feels it was one of the best decisions he ever made. He learned that an education centered around faith and the Bible, where a student can freely discuss matters of faith with both classmates and teachers, makes an incredible difference in a student’s life. It was also in his college experience that Matt discovered a passion for education. He is very excited to be a part of the BRS community and look forward to encouraging, challenging, and growing students through music.
Alan grew up in a Christian home and attended a Christian & Missionary Alliance church in Greenfield, MA. It was during the first days of his college experience that Alan asked Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior of his life. It was also there that he learned to serve the Lord. Alan got involved in Christian school education almost accidentally, but soon realized that this was God's calling on his life.
Being single, Alan has been able to serve as a Christian camp counselor and on a short-term missions trip to Russia. His passion is teaching God's Word - both here at BRS and in an adult class at my home church.

Soccer has always been a huge part of Courtney's life since she was young and is a big part of her testimony. Growing up she was a serious soccer player, playing in high school and club, however, Courtney never paired her faith and soccer together. A turning point for her was going to college where she could play soccer but also learn how to share her faith through the sport. Courtney would like to teach her team how to use soccer as a platform for the Gospel. She studied at Cairn University and played soccer there all 4 years. Courtney was able to make an impact at Cairn throughout her time there, most recently receiving the award for female athlete of the year and MVP. Courtney's goals are to create a fun environment where the girls can have fun, learn more about their game, and grow in their walk with Christ.
As a child, Gayle’s favorite playtime activity was playing, “school” with her neighborhood friends. Her father hung a chalkboard in the garage and the kids arranged picnic benches and lawn chairs as desks. She loved being the “teacher” and always knew she wanted to teach. In college, due to an extended medical leave, a professor asked Gayle to teach her Spanish 1 classes, providing valuable classroom experience before student teaching. Upon receiving her college degree in 1981, Gayle was awarded the Foreign Language Department Award during commencement exercises. After graduation, she married William Stephens in June of that same year. They have two children, Douglas and Jennifer, and two grandchildren. Coordinating Study Tours to Spain, France and Italy she challenged her students to put their speaking skills to the test, discover the linguistic similarities of the Romance Languages, and enjoy the numerous architectural, artistic and historical sites unique to each tour.
