WCS superintendent Winter follows her calling

Full story: Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

To say Karen Winter has dedicated her life to Christian education would be an understatement.

She continues to promote herself and now we all just want to here her talk?? She talked to the parents a few months ago and she sure struggled to answer questions. This is the great speaker she talks about in this article, she sure thinks she is great, why doesn't the people that have met her think that? Remember that employees at both schools cannot talk about her or they will be fired. I wonder why their high school principal says the enrollment numbers are not enough to afford the Upland campus but she just continues to sell herself. I think the principal must know the truth and tells new famillies that enrollment in the high school is way down, less than 200 Covina students have enrolled. They say they won't know what they are doing now until June, does that mean teachers won't get contracts until June and students won't know if they are at Covina or Upland? Call her previous schools and hear what they say about her. I think their version is quite a bit different. With all the problems with this sale, maybe God is telling her ?????

I guess she needed the PR to get her mondo loan for the Upland campus. Got to look good and successful.
God is in charge here. I doubt he told her to have the UCS principal locked out and humiliated as well as her spouse plus the dean of music. Didn't she read the bible as to do not covet? Guess she skipped that page. Karen may be all that and a bag of chips but she is clueless in many ways. Un-employment in this county is 13 percent. This is not the climate to expand and grow. Ambition without common sense is very foolish. Maybe God's plan is a life lesson for Karen? We will have to wait and see.

Lets make this a series. How about an article on Doane and how he has been so loving and open too. Maybe a nice picture of him feeding the homeless.
And we can find a bitter parent to quote, maybe someone whose child was not accepted at one school because he went around telling the other kids he was the antichrist.

She is definitely full of herself.
Maybe she did this to try to redeem herself. Knowing that alot of parents at Western don't care for her or her antics and would like to see her resign.-Just what I read on blogs.

I know that I attempted to get in touch with her and it was always "Ms. Winter is busy, she will get back to you". Well, that never happened. The contradictions she has made at meetings and e-mails tell alot also.

Does anyone know if any UC students (K-8 that are going to WC) that they will be going to Claremont and not Upland campuses? Has Western been honest about that? A few of my children's friends are crossing over ONLY because they think the campus will still be at Upland and things will be the same as it is now. Come on now Western (Ms. Winter), if you are getting UC students shouldn't you at least be honest with them?==and trust me UCS jr. high parents-it is NOT the same wonderful program as UC currently has.

Romans 12:9-10
"Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;"

Ok, the article seems impressive, and so does Karen Winter, but the word here is SEEMS. What about Karen being fired from one of her prior schools, and a large number of Western Christian's parents saying that "we'd love to get rid of her, we just don't know how, and the board won't". She appears to be a MONET, great from afar, but when you get to know about her she's not such a great woman.

It seems like this women is about to have a mid-life crisis, and she has the media covering it up. Real interesting. How desperate to people have to get when it comes down to the last minute and they're about to lose it all.

Romans 3:23

For "ALL" have sinned and fall short of the glory of God:)

One should not justify their thoughts and behavior as better then another of the human flesh? To tell a Christian to make phone calls to hear gossip about someone is not pleasing to God:(. Listen to what God has to say not what the flesh is speaking:)

Romans 8:28:

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose:)

This is just scary, I think she is getting really, really, really desperate.
Karen when are you going to tell all the UCS elementary parents that have enrolled at WC that they are going have to move to claremont? How long are you going to sting them along?????

If all of this is such a wonderful thing for the UCS parents and students, why has Karen Winter enforced a gag order on our wonderful teachers? Why don't they have the freedom to talk openly to the parents and help them make an informed decision about what is best for their students?

UC people keep saying that you have "moved on", "are happy that God found a better new home", and "are focused on the future." Yet you can't wait to bash someone who had nothing to do with the failure of your school. She is buying something that was for sale--this seems to be a task she was given. Yes, it is too sad it was the buildings you all were using, but that is life--unless you own something, you have no control over it. Hate is something that the Bible is pretty clear about.

I think that we all have had enough Mrs. Emerson. Both sides have come out ahead on this issue. Upland Christian Academy has a beautiful new facility in Rancho Cucamonga in which the staff of UCS can continue to do GOD's work, and Western Christian has also found a facility to continue their work in. It is now time that you, Mrs. Emerson, stops stirring the pot of discontentment and hostility between the two schools. It is time for both sides to forgive the other and go on with GOD's work in the raising of our children. There are larger issues facing Christians not only in the Inland Empire, but elsewhere in California, and in other parts of the United States. Our religion, our values, and our ability to raise our children according to Christian standards and morals are increasingly coming under attack. It is time that we let the water go under the bridge and unite, as Christians, against the real enemy, which is America's secular progressive left wing radicals who want to erase the Christian morals of our founding fathers from our society. Mrs. Emerson, my view is that you should start focusing your energy on the real issues facing America.

To: Aww

You're twisted. If someone puts themselves in that position, then they should expect to get criticism (good or bad),ESPECIALLY when she talks negative of UCS. It is hard to have respect for someone who has lied to your face. If this happened to your family, you might be a little bitter also.
