Michele Knight

Early Childhood Director


Hello, my name is Michele Knight!

Originally from Derry, Pennsylvania, I previously worked at GCS from 1998-2000 and returned in 2004 because I had previously worked in childcare centers where talking about Jesus was not accepted and I believe that we should “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Working at Gilead Christian allows teachers the freedom to share the love of Jesus, teach biblical principles and to pray over children. I believe in Christian education. I also wanted to have a common bond with the staff.
Educational Background: B.S. - Indiana University of PA; Masters- Early Childhood Education, Mount Vernon Nazarene University


FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE: Psalm 118:24
I enjoy reading and puzzles.
