E-mail Mrs. Weikum

Mrs. Weikum joined the faculty of SCA in 2014. This is a dream job for her, especially after substituting in public schools for a year and a half. She attended Christian schools from kindergarten through college and is eager to serve in a Christ-led community again. She is excited to incorporate technology in her lessons and create a classroom environment that is engaging and interactive. Math doesn’t have to be boring!

“As a learning community, we will face many challenging topics that will require endurance and collaboration. Math may not be your strongest subject, but God certainly has the power to expand your understanding. Do not feel discouraged, because God is there to bless your efforts (Joshua 1:9). You can do anything (even math) through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). When we trust in the Lord, we don’t have to lean on our own limited understanding of things (Proverbs 3:5). As your math teacher, I can explain, demonstrate, and direct your learning, but only God can give growth (I Corinthians 3:6-7). We all have personal access to Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of knowledge and understanding (Colossians 2:2-3). It is important to understand that what we accomplish in math class is not by our own strength, but by God’s strength.”

Mrs. Weikum is originally from Maryland. She and her husband now live in Lenexa, Kansas. They love being active in their church’s young adult Bible study group, exercising, and traveling.
