On his philosophy of art, he says: “C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Francis M. Schaeffer and many other respected Christian scholars looked at humanity’s inherent creativity and attributed it to being made in the image of a creative God. My goal is to help all my students discover and develop the creative spark that exists in each of them, whether they see themselves as an artist or not. I hope they gain an increased appreciation for the creativeness of God and an enrichment of their relationship to Him.”

When Mr. Nickodemus is not doing art, he enjoys reading, writing, martial arts, researching apologetics, altering computer games to suit his own tastes, and spending time with his darling wife and son.

I graduated Notre Dame University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. I have over twenty- five years of experience in education that includes a broad range of classroom environments.

I have taught Sunday school, homeschooled, taught preschool, tutored, and operated a licensed home daycare for eleven years. I have also substituted in Harford County Public Schools and Perry Hall Christian School. This is my third year at Perry Hall Christian School teaching second grade.

I believe that students need to be challenged in academics and taught to think outside the box. I believe that every child is special in their own way and that every child learns in a different way. One of my favorite subjects to teach is Bible. I like to relate my lessons to our lives.  When teaching a Bible lesson, I like to ask my students” How does this lesson relate to our life?” I love to hear how much my students love God, how they can please God and they can teach others about God.

I believe that it is my job not only to prepare my students for the next grade but to prepare them to be model citizens in God’s world and to prepare them for the future. When I am not planning a lesson or grading papers, I enjoy spending time with my family. In my spare time, I like to camp, read, watch my sons Aaron and Josh play soccer, go to the movies, and tour Washington D. C.

If I had three wishes, I would wish for a farm, zoo, or a bunny farm. I am an animal lover and love to be around animals. I enjoy playing with my American Blue Bunny named Baby Tony and dog Max.

Sherrill HoweMS Bible, MS Science, MS Math

Mrs. Howe holds a bachelor’s degree from Gordon College, where she majored in Biology and minored in Chemistry and Bible.  This will be her 8th year of teaching middle school, in addition to 4 years of homeschooling. She has been married to her husband, Skip (also a middle school teacher), for 29 years, and they have 3 sons and 1 daughter-in-law.

Mrs. Howe loves to show her students what an awesome God we serve, through interactive, hands-on activities that make learning fun.  One of her favorite verses focuses on God’s power- Amos 4:13 “He who forms the mountains,who creates the wind, and who reveals his thoughts to mankind,who turns dawn to darkness,and treads on the heights of the earth—the Lord God Almighty is his name.”

When not teaching at PHCS, Mrs. Howe is involved in teaching ESOL at a local church and on the mission field- most recently in Myanmar.  She might also be found playing strategy games or crafting-scrapbooking, crocheting, stamping, pottery…you name it, she’s probably tried it!

Susanne HardingAdmissions/Community Relations
After several years of classroom and tutoring experience, she has found an outlet for her passion for Christian education as the Admissions Director at PHCS. You’ll always find her touring around the building with new families. Her job is all about letting the prospective families know what the amazing team of faculty, staff and students at PHCS is achieving. Two of the Panthers roaming the halls belong to Mrs. Harding and two others are proud Panther alumni, which might explain why she delights in sitting under the shade of a tree with a good book sipping her iced tea when she has the chance. Her life goal comes from Genesis 24:40

The Lord in whose presence I have lived…
