Amber Pedersen 4th Grade Teacher

Mrs. Pedersen grew up in a small farming town located in the south east corner of Colorado.  She attended Faith Baptist Bible Collge and received a degree in Elementary Education with a Middle School Endorsement.  After graduation, she began teaching 7th and 8th grade Math and Science, along with 7th grade Reading and Language.  While serving at this school, she filled many positions that were open; this included teaching 5th grade and even P.E.  When it was all said and done, she landed permanently in the preschool department.  Upon meeting her husband, she moved to Indianola and, because of the commute, needed to find a new place of employment.  After spending a year working as a loan servicing specialist at a large bank, it became clear that God had placed it in her heart to be a teacher and that He still wanted her working in this capacity. She currently teaches 5th grade here at Victory Christian Academy.  She and her husband have one son and one daughter who both attend Victory Christian Academy.

When not teaching, she enjoys baking, especially custom cakes.  You will also discover that she likes her coffee and is always looking for a good cup of Joe.  Sports have always been a love of hers.  She doesn't get to play a lot anymore, but you will find her watching sports whenever she has the chance.  She and her husband like living in the country and hope, as the little one gets a bit bigger, that they can get back to racing 4-wheelers.

She feels blessed to be teaching at VCA where God and academics are the main focus.
