A Teacher at Nueva Creacion de Fe

Eva (pictured above with 2 of her students) has been a teacher at Nueva for the past 9 years. She teaches a class of energetic and enthusiastic Grade 3 students. Eva also teaches high school students Spanish, her favourite subject. While all the teachers at Nueva are very dedicated, Eva has a special place in her heart for this school — she used to be a student here! She remembers sitting in the same desks that her students sit in. Eva used to look up to her teachers and dream of being in their shoes one day, and now she can.

Eva grew up in this small, poor community and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to go away to university. What is odd about her story is that she came back! Now she can give her students the same loving education that her teachers once gave her.

Her teachers influenced her to become a teacher, “bringing God’s love into everything.” She is proud of her school and wants “to be a living testimony that you can “make it” it in this community. I regularly have kids coming to my house asking for help. God has called me to teach and serve.” Eva hopes to be an inspiration to her students and to empower them to do whatever they are passionate about. Maybe some of her students will be tomorrow’s teachers.
