Ms. Nicole Jacques                         

Nicole Jacques is our leading Elementary Reading & Language Arts and Math teacher. Nicole has her associate’s in Early Childhood Education and has spent the last 3 1/2 years teaching 4-year olds at a child care center.  The time with child care has allowed her to get hands on experience while also learning from the other teachers in the field.  She has enjoyed the years of investing into children's lives and watching them grow to love learning.  Now she is excited to not only teach children how to read and write, but to teach them the eternal truths from God's Word--discipling them to leave a legacy of walking with Christ.  Nicole first heard about the school through the Kieler family whose daughters attend GCA.  She then became involved with volunteering for enrollment nights and was really impressed by the school’s mission and dedication towards God's will.  “I am very excited that the Lord opened the door for me to teach here!  It is an honor to be a part of His working hand in this ministry and watching the Lord move in our students hearts!”

Ms. Sandi Wied

Mr. Jeremie Johnson           

Jeremie Johnson is our Head Administrator, along with our math and physical education teacher here at Grace Christian Academy. He also leads the Virtual Academy portion of Grace’s program.  “The vision of being part of a Christian educational ministry has been burning in my heart for many years.  In all my time serving and teaching, I knew the Lord was preparing me for this position!”  Mr. Johnson holds his Masters Degree and brings 12 years of experience with his time teaching and coaching within public and private schools.  Mr. Johnson is strongly devoted to help students know the Lord deeply and to disciple them towards leaving a legacy of walking with Christ!  “What an honor it is to be involved in discipling students to be ambassadors for Christ.  To teach from the Word of God every day is truly a blessing for me, our students, and families.”  Mr. Johnson is married to his wife, Amy, and together they have two children, Aleck and Linnea who attend the school.

Mr. Brian Nejedlo                  

Brian Nejedlo is our Science, Social Studies, and Bible Studies teacher.  Mr. Nejedlo has a long history of teaching, mentoring, and working in ministry.  He taught at Denmark High School from 2000 to 2004, during which time he had the privilege of meeting and working with Jeremie Johnson, our school Administrator.  The two became fast friends and maintained their relationship well after Brian left teaching to pursue other opportunities. During that time period, Jeremie Johnson became involved with Grace Christian Academy and brought the school to Brian’s attention.  Brian’s dream of involvement in a Christian school was awakened!  In looking back, Brian says, “It is pretty clear to me now that God was orchestrating a plethora of events, dating back to 2004 and leading right up to the present, to bring me to my current situation--teaching full-time at GCA.  I have no doubt that God will obtain great glory for Himself and provide me with the opportunity to testify to others of His greatness.”
