Mrs. Kris Darrah
Mrs. Kris Darrah is in her 10th year with CSW. She taught sixth grade for eight years before transitioning to teaching Upper School Grammar/Composition classes. Prior to joining the CSW staff, Mrs. Darrah spent 10 years working at home, raising her children.
Mrs. Darrah earned her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with middle-level certification in English from Tabor College in 1992. She then taught sixth grade in the Maize school district for four years before making the transition to stay at home mom.
Mrs. Darrah and her husband, Mike, have been married for 24 years. They have four children — Lexi, Cassidy, Macey and David — who all have attended or currently attend CSW, and a pug puppy named Lola slated for the 2017 CSW Kindergarten class. Their church home is Journey the Way.
Mrs. Darrah enjoys interacting with middle school students because she loves watching them figure out who they are as they transition from children to young adults. She loves helping her students harness their spunk and insight, channeling it in a positive and God-honoring direction.
“I am inspired by a verse that I love, Galatians 5:6: ‘The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love,’” she said. “The most important thing to me is my faith in Christ, and I want to express my gratitude for what Christ has done for me by showing love to others.”
