Angie Spake

Second Grade Teacher

What year did you start teaching at Siouxland Christian?


If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are God's masterpiece. Never let anyone or anything let you believe otherwise.

Is there a Bible verse or quote/saying that you live your life by?

But if not...
This is from Daniel 3:18.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego have been told if they do not bow down and worship the gods of King Nebuchadnezzar they will be thrown into the fiery furnace. Their reply is our God is able to deliver us and will deliver us BUT IF NOT we will not worship your gods.

As a cancer survivor, I had a time in my life that I was very unsure of the outcome. I decided then that God could and would save me, but if not I would not stop following Him. I have made that my life verse/phrase.

In which other teacher's class would you like to enroll, just for a day?

I would love to sit in many teachers' classes. Sydney Eiler brings such joy and excitement to learning. I wish she had been my 5th grade teacher. Ashtyn Ackerman is so accomplished in various teaching methods that she blows me out of the water. A couple of my own children would have benefitted from her influence. Emily Hageman pulls so much out of her students. She discovers talent and ability that they didn't fathom they have within themselves.

What is your favorite lesson to teach in your class?

I love teaching Bible. I want to speak to my students' hearts. I love showing them the love of God in the past, present, and future.
