This year our school-wide theme is, "The Parables of Jesus". As a class we will be unpacking this theme in addition to our Grade 3 storyline: "Anchored in Jesus." It is our hope that others will notice that we are anchored in Jesus in all that we do as we explore, experience and evaluate the world around us.
Although COVID-19 has changed the way we do many things, I trust that God will carry us through this time. I look forward to making this an enjoyable and memorable year for my students.
And now, a little dip into my personal life:
My name is Garth Allan and I have been teaching grade 3 at Calvin Christian School since 2012. I live on a hobby farm near Anola with my wife Stephanie and two children, Lewis and Mabel. Togehter we raise various farm animals while continually working on re-establishing the tallgrass prairie that once covered this area.
My passion is for native prairie plants, but my love is for children. I relate to their excitement to discover and experiment with the world around them. It is my desire to help them explore and take care of God's world. It is my goal to help them discover His amazing love and deepen their faith as they grow in their knowledge, understanding and love of His creation.
