A Teacher at Juan Calvino

Gladis was born and raised in Sabana Grande de Boya.  "I attended San Mateo Christian School and began to understand that God is always with me," she said.  "After completing fourth grade (the highest grade in that school at that time), I moved on to Juan Calvino Christian School.  There she continued to see God's love for her, even when others made fun of her dark skin and wide nose, as she was of Haitian descent.

Through a scholarship, Gladis went on to high school at Juan Calvino and graduated with honours in 1999.  "I enrolled in the university and pursued a degree in modern languages," she said.

Gladis' life was changed because she attended a Christian school that encouraged her to pursue her dreams and God's call for her life.  She knows firsthand the hope and joy found in the Lord through the Christian education she received.  Looking back, she sees how God used the hurtful teasing because of her Haitian heritage to strengthen her character and encourage her to study even harder.  She now teaches at that very school to make a change in the lives of others.  

Her love of learning and her gratitude to the Lord is evident in the joy she brings to her classes each day.  As she says, "I am part of the teaching staff at Juan Calvino for the glory and honour of my beloved Lord!"  Praise God for the hope He brings!
