Deirdre Amundsen

Principal

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education as well as Master of Arts in Elementary Administration from Chadron State College. I taught Kindergarten, First, Fourth & Fifth grades at Westmoor Elementary in Scottsbluff for sixteen years before joining Community Christian as the Principal two years ago.  My husband, Jon, is a Science Teacher at Bluffs Middle School. We have three children, Riley, 16 , Landon, 12, and Chloe, 8.  We are active members of Mitchell Berean Church and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and sports as a family.

CCS has been such a blessing to my life! We have an amazing family of students, teachers, staff and families that bring me much joy!  Our teachers not only teach using best practices, but they truly love the Lord!  They honor him thru their gifts of teaching and are always looking to improve and offer the best education possible to their classes!  Every staff member has a commitment to Christ and glorify him thru their various job assignments at school!  Our students are a light to the community thru their service activities and their character… using our 5 Guiding Principles of Safety, Ownership, Attitude, Respect & Responsibility wherever they go!  Our families are involved, interested and invested in their children’s education!  They’re willing to participate in fundraisers, volunteer, and serve in a variety of ways at school!

It’s a wonderful feeling to not only enjoy my job every day, but be surrounded by believers and continue to grow in my own faith as I follow the path in which God has laid out for me!
