Bachelor of Christian Education, Calvary Baptist Bible College
Master of Religious Education, Calvay Baptist Bible College
Began teaching full time at Sunrise in the fall of 1996. Currently teach Government, girls Bible, Debate/Forensics and Principal of Precept. I am also the Advisor for the National Honor Society, which I helped organize in the spring of 2006. Currently Coach Debate/Forensics, Mock Trial and LifeSmarts.
Married to Dr Michael O'Donnell, Sr. Pastor at Grace Baptist Church. My three children are all graduates of Sunrise:
Stephanie (Andrew) Albritton - class of 2000
Michael O'Donnell, II - class of 2003
Tyler (Katie) O'Donnell - class of 2007
As I teach girls Bible my desire is to see the girls develop a closer relationship to the Lord. We study the life of Moses and also steps to remaining pure. The girls journal and learn about how special God created them. We even take a "test" to see specific personalities (from Dobson) and how God wants to use us as we yield to Him. The girls bring "home made" items on verse day and each year we make an 8th grade cookbook!
Government is also a passion. I decided to run for the Bel Aire City Council in the spring of 2005 and am currently on my 2nd term as a Council member. The students participate in a "Mock Council" each year, as well as a "Mock Trial." We take a trip to Topeka each spring and also a trip to the courthouse. Although we use the Bob Jones curriculum, I also use dvd's from David Barton, textbooks from "We the People" ane the "Bill of Rights Institute." As we study government/civics, my prayer is that the students will see how God is directly leading our nation (Romans 13) and the importance of a righteous nation.
Students will study the road to a republic, founding father's and their faith, the Constitution, including all 27 Amendments. Students will learn the importance of "one vote" and how they can be involved!
