“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” ~ Prov 3:5-6
Until 2002, I was all about leaning on my own understanding. Since coming to saving faith in Jesus, however, I have learned that plans made through Him have such a better outcome than I could ever imagine!
I am blessed to have a wonderful husband of 28 years, and two sons who attend High School at ACS. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University, but have always loved teaching – Sunday school, homeschool co-ops, wherever I could see the light bulb go off! After homeschooling my two boys for 7 years, the Lord led us to ACS, which turned out to be a great “next step” in my sons’ educations, and an opportunity for me to teach in two areas I loved and had been teaching to homeschoolers and adults for many years: Robotics and Drama.
I have been involved in Community Theater since I was 9, doing everything from acting to directing to backstage and set building. To me, drama class should be a fun, safe place where kids can try new things, and maybe find something inside themselves they didn’t know they had.
Robotics came into my life when my son wanted to take a class at age 7. He loved it, and I subsequently became an assistant, and then a teacher in LEGO Mindstorms NXT/EV3 robotics. At ACS, I have been excited to also work with FIRST FTC Robotics and help our High School team learn to build and program in a JAVA-based environment.

I have thoroughly enjoyed being chef for ACS for the last six years and look forward to another wonderful year!
I grew up in West Columbia, Texas and graduated from Columbia High School. Afterwards I attended Brazosport College, Southwestern Assemblies of God University, and Christ for the Nations. Later I spent 6 months helping a missionary, Ralph Hagaemeir in Tanzania, Africa. After my return from Africa, I got a job working for Texaco Exploration and Production and met my wife, Laura Smith. We have been married 37 years! During this time, we have had many amazing years together, although we have also had very heartbreaking times as well. We suffered the loss of our six-year-old son in 1992, then our daughter at birth in 1993, and many miscarriages, etc. In 1994, we embarked on a new journey. We moved to Belize, Central America, where we served as missionaries. We had 25 children in our home at different times and raised 9 of them, most of their childhood. Now, most of them are grown and have families of their own. While in Belize we were blessed to give birth to our miracle, Judah Daniel Smith, weighing in at 1 pound 14 ounces! In Belize, we had a home for children who needed one, a school for them, and we started a church. We also worked closely with the Mayan community and local church in later years. I also became known for being a chef and did catering. I was known for my pizza and cinnamon rolls as well as doing some birthday cakes. Six years ago, we returned to the USA to take care of my mother. That is when I began working at ACS. Our son graduated from ACS in May 2019! My wife is also at ACS as a teacher. I am excited to be here and love working with fellow staff members, as well as the students!
Secretary: Beth Kearns
Hi! I am Beth Kearns, I am currently the Elementary Secretary
and Nurse. I attended Santa Fe Community College in
Gainesville, FL and the University of Florida Dental School for
Dental Assisting. I enjoyed the dental field for 8+ years. I was
then blessed to stay home for 10 years with my children. I
home-schooled for 4 of those years. I was led to place our
children in school, and Angleton Christian School was where the
Lord led our family. I am ever so thankful for this opportunity
that my kids and I have here at ACS.
At a very early age, I excepted the Lord as my
personal savior. I have always had a strong
faith and based my life on God’s word. My
family currently attends The Harbor in
Friendswood where we are blessed to have
God’s word taught to us.
I have been married to my husband, David, for 16
years and we have two children, Savana and
Cade. Our family is very passionate about baseball
and enjoy watching our son compete. We also,
enjoy watching our daughter swim for the
Pacesetters here in Angleton. We love to be
outdoors and spend quality time with one another.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “ Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus", and the verse I attempt to live my life by daily and instill in my children, is Luke 6:31.”Do to others as you would have done to you".
