Get to Know Us

Laurent Yount

I am a wife to Jake and a mom to daughter, Laken. I have taught in public education for 6 years and am excited to be at LIGHT for my 7th! I have previously taught 3rd grade, kindergarten, and 1st and I will be teaching 1st grade again at LIGHT on Mondays and Wednesdays. I am thrilled to be at a school that values God’s Word. When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Rachel Clement

I am wife to Ryan, and mom to 3 girls, plus my nephew, Sam, and many foster kiddos! I taught in the public school for 5 years, am starting my 10th year as a homeschool mom, and am excited to begin my 3rd year teaching at LIGHT. I have such a passion for kids and learning, and I love making the process fun and meaningful. I look forward to partnering with you and your child on this journey. In my free time, I love crafting and making memories with my family. I love what LIGHT stands for and I hope your family is as blessed by this school as much as mine has been!


Please feel free to contact us, and if you ever want an in-person meeting, we're happy to have that with you!  If you email us after 4:00pm, we may not reply until the next business day (Monday-Thursday).
