Katt Chaves: "I grew up in New Haven, CT in a loving and vibrant Puerto Rican home. A few random things about me: I am fluent in Spanish, I love lemons and sunflowers, I love to read and be in nature, and I love cooking new foods!

I have a B.S. in Education and B.A. in Music as well as a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction, all from the University of Connecticut. I taught in public school from 2019-2023 as a music teacher and loved it! The Lord saved me Spring of 2019 and I attended Christ Proclamation Church until Summer of 2023 where I then transferred to Grace Harbor and attended regularly there after getting married October of 2023.

The Lord has called my heart to use the passion He's given me for teaching in a Christian setting, and provided a great opportunity at PCA. I am so excited to serve you and your child(ren) at PCA. I pray the Lord continues to bless us as we teach students to do ALL things to the glory and honor of our Savior Jesus Christ, including learning, teaching, serving one another and proclaiming the gospel to all." 

Sasha Van Sickle: "I and my husband, Jacob, have been married for 13 years and have 6 fantastic kids ranging from age 11 to 4. I'm a 3rd generation Rhode Island native. I studied English and Education at Drake University in Des Moines, IA, graduating with a BA in English. I have enjoyed homeschooling our children since I began in 2016, and I've wanted to be part of a collaborative classical school for many years.

 

My favorite subjects to teach are English grammar and Latin. In the past few years, I have pursued  educational development in the area of teaching reading and early literacy. Besides teaching, I enjoy being active, watching sports, and cooking. 

Grace Elliot: "I'm a member of Sacred City Church in Providence, Rhode Island. Classically educated in my hometown of Stillwater, Minnesota, I received my undergraduate degree in international business from Drake University. In 2021, my husband (Mark) and I moved to Rhode Island to help plant Sacred City Church.

 

In the fall of 2023, we welcomed our first child, Joy, into the world. I'm joining the PCA team with boundless enthusiasm for God and His creation, and I'm looking forward to serving PCA’s students and their families."

Alex Long: "Through church ministry, substitute teaching, and camp counseling, I have been teaching children and students for over fifteen years. I received a B.A. in Communications (Media Production) in 2014. In April 2024, I completed my Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama. The focus of my studies included Biblical theology, Church History, and Biblical Languages.

 

My wife of three years, Emily, is a Primary Care Physician. We love visiting National Parks, playing music, and chasing around our dogs, Eddie and Bingley. I also enjoy reading, playing board games, and dabbling in creative writing.
