Laura Eves, Elementary Principal

Our Elementary Department includes PK - 5th Grade. These are important years to build on the skills gained during previous grades and prepare students for what lies ahead in the upper grades.

About Mrs. Eves: 

I accepted God's call to serve as Elementary Principal at Midland Christian School at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. What a humbling experience it is to get to daily fulfill God's mission for our school - leading students to love God and seek truth by training them in a Christ-centered environment.

I attended Texas Tech University where I earned both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees. Upon graduation, I began my teaching career in Lubbock. God gifted me a heart for children and a love of learning. Weeks into my fifth year of teaching, I was asked to transition from my classroom into administration. I know now that God opened that door as it allowed me to reach students (parents and colleagues) beyond my classroom walls, and to Him, I give all the glory. My family and I are privileged and honored to get to be a part of the Midland Christian family. I look forward to serving you and watching your children grow!
