High school computer teacher Cindy Davis loves to help her students learn new concepts and embrace their talents. She was inspired to be a teacher by her younger brother, who had special needs.

“I was seven when he was born, so he was like a real-life baby doll for me to take care of and teach,” explained Mrs. Davis.

Mrs. Davis earned a degree from Appalachian State University in special education for grades K-12 and graduated summa cum laude. She then taught special ed in the public school system to elementary and middle school students. She took time off from teaching when her children, sons Brent and Grayson, were young.

Mrs. Davis and her husband enrolled the boys in kindergarten here at Wake Christian, and after taking some computer classes to help her reenter the workforce, Mrs. Davis felt the Lord’s leading when the opportunity to teach computer at her children’s own school arose. She’s been instructing Wake Christian students in everything from word processing to web design ever since.

Mrs. Davis feels especially rewarded by the new pathways of knowledge she is able to open up to her students, and she says that “seeing them learn about history, science, culture, etc. by using the computer as the tool” particularly excites her.

Mrs. Davis added that she is encouraged when she sees students find their talents in her class.

“It is also fun to see other students recognize this in each other as well,” she continued.

Besides bonding with her students in the classroom, Mrs. Davis also has the unique chance to get to know her students through travel.

“I absolutely love to travel! I have taken students to Europe in the summer for the past ten years,” she shared. This summer, Mrs. Davis guided a group of high school students through Italy, and next year she is plans on visiting Switzerland, Italy, France, and Spain.

Mrs. Davis’ willingness to go above and beyond fits perfectly with the life lesson she tries to stress to her students the most, the verse Philippians 4:13, which says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
