Ms. Dancy holds a BS in English and is a twelve-year-veteran teacher. She is very excited to have the opportunity to teach High School English again this year, although she was disappointed to learn her students couldn't ignore all their other subjects to focus on literature. So many great books, so little time! She will be splitting her time at school with her responsibilities as our new Elementary Instructional Director.

Ms. Dancy has been married to Ahmon for 17 years. They have two boys, Micah (12) and Miles (8) who both attend Cornerstone. She considers herself a Jane of all trades, master of maybe one or two.

Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious - the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
- Philippians 4:8 (MSG)
