Connections to MPCS: Both of my boys, Ben Foster and Matthew Foster, attended MPCS. Matthew was a "lifer" at the school, attending from grades PK-12.
What I love most about MPCS: Working at MPCS has been an incredible blessing to me over the past 16 years. It is truly like being with your family. I have worked at MPCS since 2007, but I have been a part of the MPCS community since 2003 when we enrolled our oldest son, Ben, in PreK-4 class. We truly are THE BEST PLACE to work!
What I love about my role at the school: What I love about my role is that human resources is ever-changing - whether it is compliance to new laws and regulations, new systems to make things more efficient, or new strategies and benefits to help our employees. Our mission statement in HR is "What matters to you, matters to me...helping MPCS employees achieve their very best....serving the Body....working for the Lord...changing the world." I am so very privileged to be serving at such a wonderful place that bears the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
My hope for MPCS: It is my hope and prayer that each student and employee feels that are loved and deeply known at MPCS.
