Mr. Wallace: Teacher Profile
Mr. David Wallace is a teacher here at Desert Christian Academy and has been teaching for two years now, but this year will be his first year teaching here full time. What he loves most about teaching here is teaching Bible sixteen times a week. He teaches 6th, 7th, and 11th grade Bible, but he also teaches 12th grade Life skills and he is the Construction Flex Team leader. When asked if he has faced any spiritual or physical challenges he says that he hasn’t faced any challenges. And that Desert Christian Academy is a “fantastic” place to work as a Christian, and here they “expect Bible and biblical principles to be taught in every subject”. Although there are many verses that he loves, his favorite verse is Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,for those who are called according to his purpose.” He also loves to swim and his favorite color is Cobalt blue.
Some fun history about Mr Wallace is that he and his wife were high school sweethearts, and they have been married since 1985. And their family has grown, they have three sons who are grown men now, their eldest son is married and has two sons. His grandsons call him Papa David. Another thing about Mr Wallace is that he served in the United States Air Force for 12 years! This was before going to seminary and into the ministry. Mr Wallace also served as a senior pastor for 20 years before coming to the desert. Overall Mr. Wallace has a very interesting life and we are very happy here at Desert Christian Academy to have him as one of our teachers, and we can’t wait to make many more memories with him.
