Karen Stephens

Karen Stephens

Elementary Assistant Principal

Education: M.A., Teaching from Grand Canyon University; B.A., Elementary Education from Dordt University

Mrs. Stephens came to teach at ECA in 1987 as her first job after college and has been teaching here ever since. From attending elementary and high school in Denver to a Christian college in Iowa, she’s spent her whole life in the Christian school setting. Throughout those years as a student, Mrs. Stephens’ own teachers continuously modeled their love and commitment to the Lord. This was incredibly impactful as she grew into the teacher and leader she is today, and she desires to show that same love, commitment, and enthusiasm in her own classroom. Her favorite verse is from I Thessalonians 5:16-18, Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. It is Mrs. Stephens’ continued prayer that each child who enters her classroom would find joy in learning and love serving the Lord in all that they do.

Beth Saks

Beth Saks

Collegium Director

Education: B.A., Elementary Education: University of South Carolina; Continuing Education: Multnomah Bible College.

Mrs. Saks has invested over 30 years in the education and discipleship of our Covenant children.  Believing language is given to us alone in the creation to reflect God’s image, she is committed to teaching our students to steward this gift well.  She is privileged to introduce our students to Latin, a language which provides insight into the world of Jesus’s day, context for our own nation’s history, and perspective for the study of western civilization.  “I believe there are few means more beneficial to the training of young minds than the study of Latin; the resulting virtues of discipline and understanding are great gifts to be pursued. ‘…diliges Dominum Deum tuum…in tota mente tua.’ Matthew 22:37, Latin Vulgate [‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God…with thy whole mind.’].”
