What do you love about Zeeland Christian?

Love the kids I teach, the teachers who passionately do their job and the supportive community of parents, as well as the freedom to worship and share God's Word as the only truth.

Why are you passionate about Christian Education?

It is the best foundation for kids' life as they continue to learn and grow in the world God has created.

What do you want others to know about you?

I was born and raised in Mexico. My parents had been in church ministry since before I was born. However one day I realized I was lost without Jesus and decided to make him my Savior and follow him. I moved to the USA after getting married to Albert, whom I met at church while I was in college in Holland MI. We now have been married for almost 17 years and have two boys and one girl. Our family loves to travel to Mexico, to Minnesota and places in Michigan. We love driving to these places as well! I love showing my Mexican culture and charisma to my family, friends and the kids I teach. I love sewing and reading. Running is one of my ways to exercise along with basketball and biking. One of my recent interests is learning more about the Mandarin Chinese language and their culture.

One life lesson your students have taught you: 

They teach me so much about patience and unconditional love for others.  Their fresh faith and trust in God encourage me in my walk with God.
