Hi. My name is Alfred Epp and my entire teaching career has been at Lethbridge Christian School. This year, I will be moving to teach the Grade 5 class after several years teaching Grade 6. I'm excited about the new curriculum and look forward to a great time ahead with the kids.
My wife, Laura, and I just celebrated our 31st anniversary this summer. We have four wonderful children, Travis, Brittany, Christian, and Katrina. Travis (29) lives and works as a teacher in Pincher Creek with his wife, Japhia who is an EMT. They are expecting their first baby in October 2016 and we are very excited about that! Brittany (27) is a nurse who has become a full-time mom to three awesome little rug rats, Isaiah (4), Judah (2), and Elias (just about 1). Her husband, Casey Hiebert, owns his own plumbing company and the two of them have a very active household in Cochrane. (P.S. One of my 2016 summer highlights was being there when our oldest grandson, Isaiah, caught his first fish! I got to be a part of that experience, one that he thanks God for often when he prays at night.) Our third child, Christian, is working at Timberline Bible School in Fraser, Colorado for the next year where he will be hosting groups who come to the school and working on maintenance of the grounds and facilities. We love that he is in a place surrounded by godly people who will pour into his life over this next year. Our youngest child, Katrina, is attending Lethbridge College for her second year, working toward a business diploma with the goal of someday owning her own small business. We are pretty confident that her plans to take the business world by storm will happen soon.
God works in wonderful and yes, very mysterious ways! I used to think teaching was absolutely NOT for me. I had no intentions of becoming a teacher but God worked on my heart and through years of coaching, teaching Sunday School, and working at Kids' Club, I started to think maybe I could do this "working with kids thing" every day. With the support of my incredible wife, I went back to school at the University of Lethbridge when I was 35 years old. After graduation, I didn't even apply for my job at LCS. I had no idea there was a job until I got a phone call from the principal. God had a plan, a place and a time for me! Since 2003, that place has been here at LCS. I don't know what the future holds but I know who holds the future, so that's good enough for me.
