SPOTLIGHT ON A TEACHER AT CANAAN CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Jackie Compton - Fourth Grade Teacher
Mrs. Compton is a December 2015 graduate of Summit University with highest honors in Elementary Education. She also has a Bible Certificate with her degree. Part of her student teaching was done right here at Canaan Christian Academy under the supervision of Mrs. Droppa. The Lord brought Mrs. Compton along just at the right time for us to consider her to replace Mrs. Farrell so that she could have her baby.
Mrs. Compton is married to Chance Compton who attended CCA for part of his education. He currently is employed as a diesel mechanic with PennDot. They were married in July of 2015 and attend First Baptist Church of Hollisterville. Mrs. Compton assists with teaching Sunday School in the first through third grade class.
Some interesting but little known facts about Mrs. Compton is that she is very interested in STEM education and desires to see her students excel in math and science. She also reigned as the 2009 GDS Fair Queen where she attributes learning to be comfortable and confident in front of large groups. She has also been in a national competition for singing and children's lesson solo. Music is a love of hers, and she not only sings but plays the flute and steel drum.
We are pleased to have Mrs. Jackie Compton as a part of our faculty and staff.
