We asked Mrs. Matlock…
What is your favorite part about being a teacher?
My favorite part of being a first-grade teacher at liberty is getting to teach them the biblical foundations that will help them grow in Christ and become the men and women of faith in the future.
What is your favorite thing about Liberty Christian School?
My favorite thing about Liberty Christian School is the family-like atmosphere. We are all here for one another and support each other every step of the way. It is not just a community of co-workers but it is truly like a family.
