My wife, Wendy Cutchins, is a National Board Certified teacher with over 15 years experience in the classroom. Wendy earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Winthrop University as well as a Master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in divergent learning from Columbia College.
During her years in education, she has taught third, fourth, and fifth grades in South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, and Georgia. The majority of her teaching years where spent in the award winning Fort Mill School District of South Carolina where she taught at Gold Hill Elementary School. During her time there, she served as grade level chair and was named Teacher Of The Year. Although the majority of her teaching experience is in public schools, she has also taught at Hyde Park Christian School in Austin, TX.
Wendy was born in California but, because her dad was in the Air Force, she moved all over the world before landing at Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC. Wendy and Stephen met in ninth grade at Sumter High School and began dating in tenth grade. Shortly after they started dating, Stephen shared the gospel with her and led her to faith in Christ. Wendy was later baptized at their home church, Alice Drive Baptist Church.
Today, Wendy enjoys serving in the church in the area of technology. She loves spending time with her family and enjoys photography as a hobby. In the summer of 2012, Wendy and Stephen co-led a mission trip to Costa Rica. During the trip, the team was able to work with several hundred Costa Rican kids at Palomo Elementary School in Costa Rica. Wendy led the team to put on four separate Bible school events. Hundreds of Costa Rican children rotated around and were exposed to the message of God’s grace.
