Financial Assistant


“The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to strengthen those whose heart is fully His.”
2 Chronicles 16:9


My name is Karen Rhodes and I am the financial assistant at Woodway Christian School. My heart is deeply connected to this school as both of my now-adult children attended preschool and kindergarten here–over twenty years ago. I am forever grateful for the academic teaching and spiritual nurturing they received in their formative years here, which helped shape them and prepare them for first grade and beyond. They made friends at this school that they are still friends with to this day, and I can say the same thing for me still remaining good friends with some of the parents.

My husband Gary and I have been married for 32 years, and as I mentioned we have two children. Our son, Chris is married to Katie and they live in Denver, Colorado. Our daughter Annie is married to Zach Johnigan and they live here in Waco. Besides my part time job here at WCS, I  work part time at a dermatologist office here in Waco where I am an office assistant. I’m also a caretaker for my 87 year old mother who lives two doors down from me.

I enjoy being outdoors, caring for my family, spending time with friends, neighborhood walks with my husband, singing in my church choir, going to the beach, and attending Baylor sporting events.
