Masters in Elementary Education 

Shae graduated from Liberty University with her Master’s in Teaching: Elementary Education and immediately started working in the private Christian school sector. While she loved her time teaching private school, she really felt the Lord calling her to make a change and begin homeschooling her two children, Lacey and Lincoln. When she mentioned the idea to her husband Ricky, he was completely on-board, and they haven’t looked back since! Being able to continue her teaching career through her switch to Bridge, has really shown first-hand the provision of God in her life. She can now spend more time with her family, volunteer more at her church, and create connections with her students at Bridge that hopefully last a lifetime!
