Recently, I had a child in my class who struggled with math. We worked hard and near the end of the year, it finally clicked for them and they shouted: “Mrs. VanMeter, I LOVE math now!” I unashamedly cried right then and there.

As a teacher, what is a unique experience, talent, or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students? For staff, how do you believe God has uniquely equipped you for your position here at Rock Solid?
As both a teacher and a parent of four students, all in different grade levels at RSCA, I see both sides of the teacher/parent partnership every day. I have witnessed the blessings of University Model learning in the lives of my own children, which gives me even greater passion to see other families thrive at Rock Solid.
What sets Rock Solid students apart from other students?
Our students are uncommonly well-balanced young people. This is, I believe, in large part due to the confidence that they find in a Christ-centered community; however, it is also a natural result of their families enjoying a more flexible, relaxed schedule that allows for discipleship and the pursuit of unique interests.

Last year I had a child in my class who struggled with math. As the year went on, this child slowly began to understand the underlying mathematical principles, and gradually an appreciation for the subject grew. Near the end of the year, the class witnessed an uncharacteristically loud outburst: “Mrs. VanMeter, I LOVE math now!” I unashamedly cried right then and there.
