Amy Mullins recently joined the Delaware Christian School team as the Director of Admissions. Originally from Florida, Amy and her husband currently live in the Delaware community with their son, who attends middle school at Delaware Christian School.
What are your main responsibilities at Delaware Christian School?
My primary responsibility at DCS is to walk with families through the admissions process from the initial inquiry through enrollment. I also manage current admissions materials and plan community events to spread the news about the great work being done at Delaware Christian School.
What do you love about Delaware Christian School?
The faculty, staff, and students! As a new member to the team this year, I have been welcomed with open arms into the DCS family. Likewise, when my son started at school here last year, the students and staff enveloped him in love and care during his transition. I have been so impressed with the manner in which DCS students interact with each other and the level of respect they have for one another. I also love that we can worship the Lord freely while at work. After working in the corporate environment for a time after several years in Christian education, I realize how valuable this freedom to express my love for Christ is in the workplace. I’m very thankful to be back “home” in a Christian environment.
What have been your experiences in Christian education?
I am truly blessed to have had first-hand experience with Christian education since I was eleven years old! I attended Saint Petersburg Christian School, Keswick Christian High School, and Samford University. Upon graduating with my Master’s degree, I returned to Saint Petersburg Christian School to teach for four years. I believe that it was my years as a student in Christian schools that molded me into the woman of God that I am today. I am forever thankful for the life lessons, teachable moments, and daily devotions that started each day of my school years, as they have turned into spiritual disciplines in my adulthood years.
How do you think you will make a difference in the lives of students in your role at Delaware Christian School?
My goal is to be an example to students here at DCS. I strive to show them Jesus’ love, embrace work in a positive fashion, and share joy with those around me. I hope to use my experiences here to spread the word about the phenomenal school that we are, inviting more students to join our family, and thus reaching more children for Christ.
What do you want families to gain by interacting with you in Admissions?
Comfort! I remember touring several campuses when we moved to Ohio while looking for the right school for our son. I was anxious, as I wanted the best fit for him and our family. I hope that families will feel comfortable while meeting with me to gain a true understanding of DCS. I have an open door policy and welcome families to ask the questions that are on their hearts and minds. We at DCS love our students and want them to know we will partner with them to raise their children in God’s Word.
