Director: Cathy Channels
I helped start this school 29 years ago. I love being Director of a Christian program. Our teachers are amazing. Our students and families are wonderful. Our Pastor does a great job leading the children’s chapel time each week. I like being in a quiet location and having a playground with a view. For more information or to schedule a tour call 805-482-9706 or email. Mrs. Channels is often in the classroom or on the playground, so if you don’t get a response right away, she will e-mail or call you back as soon as she can.
Celine Diaz - I started working at Mount Cross in 2008. Cathy Channels is such a thoughtful, appreciative, and creative Director and boss. The staff all get along so well. The location of the school and the scenery from the playground make for exciting observation and conversation between the children. Having the pastors open our meetings with prayer and devotion is the best way to start each school year and always creatively invites us to reflect on ourselves as a good soul and teacher. I love children and teaching. This school has really set the bar high for my future.
Karen Fanner - I was at Mount Cross 6 years as a parent and have been teaching since 2011. I like everything about our school! Mount Cross CDC is a place filled with joy and a love of learning. I love working with children and helping them see their own potential. Mount Cross CDC gave my own children a great start to their education. I loved this school so much as a parent and board member that I just had to be part of the staff!
Melissa Henry - I have worked at Mount Cross 10 plus years. The children and their enthusiasm are my favorite part of teaching here.
