Camela Says:

I love being responsible for the education of young children. Children under the age of 7 absorb experiences and make brain connections that cannot be achieved at an older age.  I love seeing children be successful and watching the “light bulb” go off in their eyes.  My mission is to teach children to love Jesus, to respect God and adults, and to instill values that will last beyond our walls and into the world.  At Central Church, having the support of the ministerial staff and congregation members helps me work toward completing my mission for each and every child.


"Camela is passionate and innovative about educating and ministering to the children in our Day School and their families. We appreciate the wonderful life and spiritual training she provides."

Staff and Parrish Relations Committee Chairman

"Camela has done outstanding work for the Central Day School during the pandemic. She has led the way for the Day School to institute a comprehensive health and safety protocol for the children, parents, and staff. Camela helped to plan and implement a summer program for the Day School which was instrumental in allowing children to safely return to their opportunities for academic, spiritual, and social development in a safe manner. Being the director of an educational program in the COVID-19 is certainly not easy (just ask any school principal, superintendent, or teacher right how) and Camela has given exemplary leadership to the Central Church Day School in this uncertain and unprecendented time!"
