Angie Homer

Administrative Assistant

Anne Angell

Bookkeeper

Mrs. Angell is a long time member of the WCA staff and over the years has served the school in many different capacities. Beginning in 1992, she was the Art teacher for the lower elementary grades and shortly thereafter joined the administrative staff as the School Secretary having brought with her many years of experience in the banking and accounting fields.  Later, her position grew to Office Manager as well as the school Bookkeeper. Recently, Anne has moved to working part time in the office, continuing as the Bookkeeper and is semi-retired.

 

Anne and her husband Ed have two adult daughters who both attended WCA from Kindergarten through 12th grade! She and her husband attend Windham Assembly of God.

 

Over the years Anne has seen WCA grow and change, but there are some things that remain and those are Windham Christian's commitment to provide excellence in education, a dedication to the community, and honoring the Lord by leading its students to a lifelong journey of loving God and living for Him.

 

Her favorite verse in its simplicity is, “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10 because this always brings her back to remembering His mighty omniscience and our ultimate dependency on a loving and gracious God.

Rick Hagerstrom

Natalee Stotz

Director of High School Education

Mrs. Stotz attended Philadelphia Biblical University where she received her degree in Bible and Secondary Education with a concentration in History.  She has always been an avid reader and an aspiring writer, and previously taught middle school English. She discovered then that English her true passion. Natalee taught for seven years in Christian schools in New Hampshire,  a year working with Coastlands Consultants as a teacher and mentor, and 5 years teaching in Massachusetts where she met her husband, John.  Fortunately for us, she moved to Maine to be closer to family.  


In her own words: My mission as an educator is two fold.  I believe God has called me to mentor teens and challenge them to take ownership of their faith, and I also desire to help my students become life long learners, readers and writers. 

Favorite Bible Verses:  Colossians 2:6-7, "Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude."

David Earle

Math & Economics

Mr. Earle has been teaching at Windham Christian Academy since 1995.  He graduated from Evangel College in Springfield Missouri with a Bachelors in Mathematics, a concentration in Biblical Studies and a minor in Psychology. Dave and his wife have four grown children who all attended Windham Christian Academy.


In his own words: When a teaching opportunity opened up at WCA, I was very interested in applying.  I have not regretted that choice.  Teaching at WCA involves more than just conveying academic information.  It involves daily modeling of Christian behavior and mentoring students whether on the sports field, in the classroom or even off the school premises.  In other words, Christian education is much more than adding a Bible course to the curriculum. I feel both blessed and honored to have the opportunity to impact the lives of those who are the next generation of the Church.  Although I have a number of favorite Bible verses, the one that comes to mind is from 1 Corinthians 13:12 - 'For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:  now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.'  If, in the various subjects I teach, I can help my students to see through that "glass" just a little more clearly so that their hope in Christ and eternity is solid, then I have accomplished much of what I have been called to do.

His teaching philosophy is that every individual can become what God intended, that each person has inherent value and significance, and that no one should be left behind.
