Briercrest Christian Academy Highlights

How did you end up at BCA? I had been living in South Korea at the time for many years with my husband and two sons. We knew God was calling us to move to Canada. I heard about a position opening up at BCA and applied. Once I was hired, two weeks later we packed up our whole lives and landed in Caronport.

What is your role at BCA? I am the International Program Coordinator. I teach English as a Second Language and provide support and care for our international students.

How long have you taught/been on staff at BCA? This is my 5th year.

What is your favorite memory about your job at BCA? My favorite memories are the many trips with the ENGLISH+ students. We have had some great adventures all over Western Canada. Also, when the bell rings after school and my office fills up with students just coming to hang out. Favorite time of my day!

What do you believe is the most important thing about your job? I think the most important part of my job is being a support to our international students so they don’t feel alone while they are here. I have been in their shoes, and it is a huge transition moving to a new country and culture. There are so many things to adjust to and I get the unique job of helping them journey through their life here.

How have you seen students' lives changed as they encounter God at BCA? I have seen students grow deeper, and be excited about their faith. BCA allows students to be surrounded by others who can build into their life, which they may not get at home. This community allows young people to be discipled and encouraged. I have seen some students leave here with a solid foundation that they are taking into university, and being able to stand strong for the Lord.
