Elementary Principal – Mrs. Lane came to us from The WellSpring School in the United Arab Emirates, where she was a principal for the past five years. She is passionate about seeing students become innovative thinkers, skilled communicators, and courageous leaders. In considering returning to the US, she hoped to find a school that would thrive through diversity, enjoy community, and be founded on Truth. She applied to teach at CBA but is really passionate about supporting and mentoring teachers while building an intentional curriculum. This led to the creation of her new position at CBA so that she can take CBA to the next level in preparing world changers. She will work with Dr. Johnson and the CBA team to review the current curriculum and develop it further through what is called “backward design,” which means knowing what you want in the end and making sure each level of education is developed towards that goal. Mrs. Lane has been an educator for 35 years. She spent nearly two decades teaching and leading in public and Christian schools in Virginia. In addition to her work as an educator and nondenominational church planter, she and her husband also raised three children. Her love for children only deepened with the arrival of her grandchildren.
