<b>Sherry Daily, Grades K-4</b>
Sherry Daily, Grades K-4

 Mrs. Daily brings with her 30 years of teaching experience in multi-grade classrooms for the Adventist Church. She is a graduate of Southern Adventist University. Mrs. Daily met her husband, Richard, when she was his son’s third grade teacher in Salisbury, North Carolina.  Mr. Daily, who is now retired, was the business manager for Daily Manufacturing Inc., a company that produces vitamins and food supplements.  They have two grown children, Amanda Demsky, a dental hygienist in the Ashville, North Carolina area and Michael Daily, a marketing accounts manager for Shaw Carpets in Kennesaw, Georgia. 

 The Dailys are both committed to Adventist Education.  They have seen the impact it makes in the life of families in leading others to Jesus.  Studies have shown that when children have a strong spiritual life at home, at church (by being involved in Sabbath School, Adventurers, Pathfinders) and at Adventist schools, there is a 99% chance they will remain life-long Adventists.

<b>Kristi Bishop, Kindergarten</b>
Kristi Bishop, Kindergarten

Mrs. Bishop began her career in education teaching students with hearing and language impairments. She has enjoyed teaching students of many different ages and abilities. Her greatest desire is to inspire students to love and serve Jesus. She also endeavors to inspire them to love learning and gain the tools they will need to be life-long learners. Helping students begin to read and write for the first time is especially rewarding to her. She also loves teaching science, as well as helping her students become excited about numbers.

Mrs. Bishop is also a Licensed Practical Nurse. Although she enjoyed her time in the nursing field, she will tell you her first love is teaching, and that she “was born to be a teacher.”

Mrs. Bishop has been married to her husband Roddy for 30 years, and has two young-adult sons.

Lucas Smith, Principal and Grades 5-8

     Mr. Smith  was raised in an SDA home in northern California. He had a falling out with God during his Junior year of high school, but reconnected with Him two years later after a near-death experience. Believing that God was calling him into ministry, he decided to study Theology at Walla Walla University. Working as a tutor in the theology department, he fell in love with teaching. He decided to be a teacher, and to do his best to lead students to Christ. Before joining BCCA, Mr. Smith taught at Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy in Pennsylvania.
