Sandra Kopania

School Board


Sandra is passionate about her children and Jesus, which makes her passionate about providing high-quality, Spirit-led Christian education to the local community of believers.  She and her husband, Tim, were so motivated to provide Spirit-filled education to their children, that in 2012 they moved from New Jersey to Redding specifically to enroll their children in Bethel Christian School.

Sandra is convinced that developing children’s relationship with God is the priority in parenting and in Christian education. Her hope is that she will be able to use her gifts of administration, strategic thinking, and entrepreneurship, along with her life experience from the military and business world to help the school board advance their objectives to best support BCS and propel it into an even higher level of excellence.

Sandra has a Master’s Degree in Organizational Psychology from St. Mary’s University and a Bachelor’s Degree from the United States Air Force Academy. Her life verse is 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
