Dear Midland Families,
One way to help you keep current with what is going on at Midland is to visit our website at midlandacademy.org. Dave Fairchild, our webmaster, is working diligently to make sure that our site is up-to-date and interesting.
We have three new teachers who have joined our Midland team this year. Matt Teller, our new high school math teacher, comes to us from Thunderbird Academy in Arizona, where he taught math for six years. He will also be teaching 5th and 6th PE with an emphasis on gymnastics. Mr. Teller has been a gymnastics coach and has participated in many levels of competitive gymnastics from high school to college. His wife, Mayda Teller, will also be joining us teaching Spanish I and Health.
Leading out in our Music department is Naomi Bruette. She will be teaching K-12 music, which will include elementary, middle and high school choirs, bands and Diversity, our select high school choral group.
Travis Sisson, an alumnus of Midland and currently a student at Southern Adventist University, will be doing his student teaching at Midland while finishing his secondary degree in Religion. He will be working with Mrs. Murrill teaching our high school Bible classes and middle school Bible. I am certain that as you get to know the new members of our Midland staff, you will appreciate their dedication to our students and our educational program.
We recognize that parents are their children's first and most important teachers, and we look forward to partnering with you this year to provide your child with the best educational experience possible. Take time to talk with your children about their school experiences. Your interest and concern in their school progress will motivate them to do their best. Maintain contact with your children's teachers and with me. Ask questions and communicate concerns so that we can build a partnership which will ensure student success.
I would like to thank you for choosing Midland Adventist Academy. We invite you to join us as we "become a school of prayer", by lifting up our students and staff in your prayer time each day. We serve a God who is very interested in our needs and is ready "to unlock Heaven’s storehouse" and bless us with an amazing school year.
