Mrs. Wendy Barham
Kindergarten 3

Welcome to preschool at SLA!  My name is Wendy Barham and this is my second year of teaching K3!  I have also had the honor of being a substitute teacher for Shining Light Academy before taking on the K3 class in 2014.  I have really enjoyed teaching these little ones.  It warms my heart to know that I have such a loving part in their lives.

I grew up in and still an active member of Smith Grove Baptist Church in Colfax.  I teach the Beginner’s Sunday School Class (ages 5-7) and help out wherever I am needed.  I also serve on the mission house committee there.  My husband serves as a trustee and a Deacon.  I was saved and baptized here at the age of 10 under Pastor Ward Larrimore.  I thank God everday for saving my soul at such a young age!  I have enjoyed being able to serve him for so many years.

My husband and I have been married for 20 years and are blessed with two wonderful children who currently attend Shining Light Academy.  My son, Joseph, is 13 years old and my daughter, Mackenzie, is 7 years old.  Joseph accepted Christ as his personal Saviour here at the Academy last year as a 5th grader.  On July 23 of this year my daughter also accepted Christ as her personal Saviour!  I thank the Good Lord everyday for allowing them to attend this school.  We are truly blessed!

I am also a CMA (Certified Medical Assistant) of 20 years.  I worked in the medical field for 10 years until I had my son.  I have kept my certification up to date through out these years.  I then began an in-home daycare for ages birth to 6 years in order to stay home with my children.  I mainly cared for ages 2-4 years.  I did this for 11 years until God openend another door for me.  I am thankful that God has placed me here to care for your precious children.  They are definitely gifts from God!  I am so happy I am able to share these moments with them.  I promise to give them the best academic and Christian education possible.  I will love and care for them as if they were my own children.
