Hi! I am Janelle Shives: Science and Math teacher at Bass Memorial Academy. I love being at Bass because I whole-heartedly believe in the mission of the school to contribute to the army of “Youth, Rightly Trained” that will carry the gospel to the whole world! We as faculty have decided on the following 7 qualities we would like our students to obtain while at Bass:

I was born and raised in the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Orlando, FL, but was not converted till the age of 21 when David Asscherick came for Restoration 2004 to Loma Linda, CA.  Since then my wonderful husband Jason and I have seen God lead our lives in incredible ways! We love to do mission trips and have been to India, Dominican Republic, Tchad, Nigeria, Mexico, and multiple times to Haiti.


My husband and I love to travel and being outdoors. We are both scuba divers, and diving The Great Barrier Reef is on my “bucket list.” We are also endurance athletes and gymnasts. We met on SAU’s Gym-Masters team 🙂

We don’t have any children yet, but a number of the Bass students call us mom and dad. We have 2 dogs: Deuteronomy and Roxy.
