Re: 5th/6th grade English/History Teaching Position…The CCA Board wishes to inform you that Mrs. Pam Mullen is no longer planning

The candidate must be a Christian, be certified, and have a love for teaching English and History.  The candidate would teach 5th grade English, History, and Bible from 8-11:30, and then teach 6th grade English and History from 12-3 each day of the week.  Thank you for praying and partnering with us as we seek God’s candidate for this teaching position at CCA.
