My name is Shelby Brandi. I have been a part of the Silver Valley Christian Academy family since November 2013. I dedicated my life to Jesus Christ when I was six years old. I grew up in the Silver Valley and graduated from Wallace Jr./Sr. High School in 2010. I completed my Associates of Science in Child Development in May 2015. I originally studied Mining Engineering and was given many wonderful opportunities to explore the occupation. God continually tugged my heart in a different direction, however. I knew that belonged back home in the Silver Valley serving the families of the area I loved so much.
My hope is that the families of the Silver Valley, who find themselves searching for more for their children, see the potential SVCA has in providing an excellent education and fostering a relationship with Jesus Christ for those children.
My name is Cara Fender. I am blessed to be the 4K-5K teacher at SVCA. I have 3 children that attend the Academy. I have lived in California, Oregon, and Montana before moving to the Silver Valley with my family in 2014.
I believe a Christ centered education is essential. Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up a child the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

My name is Tomi Lyle. I am excited to be teaching 1st through 5th grade.
I became a follower of Jesus Christ in 1972, and have been involved in kid’s ministries for over 30 years.
I moved to the Silver Valley in 1998 when I married my husband, Don. We have three children and five grandchildren.
I look forward to inspiring our students both spiritually and academically.

My name is Sarah Bebout. I have lived in the Silver Valley since 1997. I graduated from Wallace Jr./Sr. High School in 2012. I gave my life to Christ in 1998. I earned an Associates of Science in Social Work from North Idaho College in 2016.
I love North Idaho and all it has to offer as a home and place to raise my family.
I am looking forward to teaching at the Silver Valley Christian Academy. I am excited for what God has in store for this new chapter.
