Professional Background: Ms. Alston has been involved in teaching in many venues over a long career: public schools, tutoring and long term subbing, conventional Christian schools, and eight years in classical Christian education. Her years at St. Stephen’s have been the richest and most rewarding, as the curriculum is rich and full and ministers to the whole student, and the Grace and Truth of Christ inform everything.
Philosophy of Education: Classical Christian education is a practical application to the whole person, in a manner that is developmentally appropriate, of all that is True, Good, and Beautiful in God’s creation.
