She began to practice teaching in this country, as an assistant a Kindergarten class in Corvet Elementary here in Tucson. In 1998 she agreed to be the Pre-kindergarten teacher and Kindergarten at Tucson Junior Academy. That building was sold so we changed locations while building what we now have in Saguaro Hills SDA Christian School.
