About Mrs. Deschaine:   I was born and raised in Michigan and come from a family of teachers, my dad and mom having taught music and preschool respectively and my older siblings (and their spouses) also in the teaching business. My older sister and her husband live and teach in the area and my husband and I are so excited to be close to them and their new little one! I enjoy running and ran all through college on the cross country and track teams. I also enjoy reading a good book; spending time outdoors and with family; singing and making music; and watching BBC crime and comedy shows.
Favorite Bible Verse:
   John 16:33 - "“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Why send students to Living Word?   I am new to the LW staff, but having had the benefit of a small Christian school growing up, I know the immense blessing of a staff that cares for the individual. Already from my brief time at Living Word, it is readily apparent that each and every staff member prioritizes both academic excellence and relationship with students. You can't underestimate the power of learning in a faith-based environment that nurtures both intelligence and a solid awareness of God's presence in our lives. It is the best way to equip our kids with a firm foundation to head out into the world.
