Temple Christian School is pleased to announce that Mrs. Theodora Fernander has been selected to serve as our new Pre-School Vice-Principal, effective Monday, August 26, 2019.


Theodora is an experienced school educator, who has more than 15 years of teaching experience, and more than 7 years of combined experience serving in church ministry roles such as Sunday school teacher at Evangelistic Temple and as a member of the church Board at First Assembly, Marsh Harbor. Sh¬¬e most recently served as a grade 2 teacher at Sadie Curtis Primary School. Her undergraduate degree in Exceptional Children’s Education – Learning disabilities was obtained from St. Augustine’s College in Raleigh, North Carolina. Mrs. Fernander will soon pursue a master’s degree in educational leadership from an accredited university.


Two of Theodora’s notable professional achievements as a teacher are her appointments at Literacy Coordinator as well as Grade Level Coordinator at Central Abaco Primary School.


Mrs. Fernander, when asked about her hopes for the new school year said: "I would like to see at the end of the year in June, growth in the students’ reading ability, and in K3-K4, I would like to see a marked growth in their ability to recognize letter sounds as it relates to the Abeka curriculum. I would also like to see an improvement in their Math skills.” She noted that she would also “like to formulate really strong bonds [with] the teachers. Mrs. Fernander indicated that she “would like for [the teachers] to be able to embrace technology.”


The Fernanders have two daughters, both of whom are elementary school aged.

Temple Christian School looks forward with anticipation to the impact this appointment will have on the life of not only our Pre-school, but also our entire Temple Christian School community.
