Robin Ritchie

Lead Administrator

God has truly blessed me by allowing me to serve in the field of education for many years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education, and a Specialist Degree in Education from Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO. I have served 11 years as an elementary teacher, 6 years as an Elementary Building Principal and 14 years as a District Superintendent in the Missouri public school systems. I joined the CCA staff in 2018 and it is exciting to serve as the Lead Administrator at  Clinton Christian Academy! I enjoy working closely with the teaching staff in the areas of curriculum and instruction. I also love getting to know all of our students here at CCA! Children are truly a gift from God and it is a privilege that parents have entrusted these precious gifts to the staff here at CCA where we strive to “prepare hearts and minds to impact the world for Jesus Christ.”

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Steve. We were blessed and highly favored to be able to move here to Clinton to be near our daughter, Miranda Curnutte, and her husband, Eric. Grandsons, Isaac and Seth, bring us so much joy and attend CCA. Additionally, I enjoy singing, piano, and reading!

Upper School Principal and 6th Grade Science Teacher

I am so excited to be a part of the growing Clinton Christian Academy.  There is no doubt the Lord has led me to be the Upper School Principal and 6th grade Science teacher at CCA.

I worked in public education for 15 years.  The Lord has blessed me in many ways as a public school teacher but has now led our family here.  This will be my 3rd year as the Upper School Principal here at CCA.  It will be my 2nd year teaching 6th grade Science.

I began my education at Missouri State University where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in K-12 Health and Physical Education in 2005.  In 2007 I received a Master’s degree in Education Administration.  Soon after I became certified to teach Biology.  In the past I have taught Biology, Junior High Life Science, Physical Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Earth Science, Health and Physical Education

My husband, Nathan and I have three children who attend Clinton Christian Academy.  Clara, our oldest daughter, is 16 and will be in the 11th grade.  Hadley, our son, is 13 and will be in the 8th grade. Mayme, our youngest daughter, is 11 and will be in the 6th grade.  We reside in Lowry City, MO where my husband runs his business, Wood Customs.  Along with being involved in our church, First Baptist of Lowry City, sports and outdoor activities keep us busy as a family.

I am honored to be a part of Clinton Christian Academy where God is moving in many lives.  Please join me in continuing to pray for all involved in CCA.  May the Lord bless this school in its entirety.

 Ron Kreisel

Athletic Director

The Lord has blessed me by calling me to the role of Athletic Director at Clinton Christian Academy. I will work hard to continue the legacy of sportsmanship and love of Christ left by Roger Bancroft.

I have been involved in athletics my whole life as either a player, parent or coach. I was active as a student at Green Ridge High School as a player and elementary basketball and Little League baseball coach. I attended SFCC, where I was student manager for the basketball team that went to the JUCO National Tournament and was ranked as high as 7th in the nation in 1976. I finished my formal education at UCM, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1978. My early years I coached basketball, baseball and cross country at Calhoun, Mansfield and Stoutland. I left the education scene in 1985 and put in a career with Coca-Cola. I returned to my hometown school of Calhoun where I taught and coached for 16 more years.

My wife Vickie and I have three children, six grandchildren, and a great-grandson. I enjoy sports and the ability to serve and worship the Lord Jesus Christ with gladness at the Clinton First Baptist Church where I serve as a deacon. I am excited over this new opportunity to serve Him at CCA. You can text or call me anytime at my cell (660-525-2314), or email me at rkreisel@clintonacademy.org.
