Celebrating 20 Years of Loving Service!
On Friday, March 12th, Bradshaw Christian celebrated their assistant director and Master Teacher, Mrs. Monica Gallegos-Yslas, and her 20 year anniversary at the preschool! Notably, BCS began as a preschool only, with just three students, eight years prior to Mrs. Yslas arriving on the scene. From the beginning, BCS added a grade level every year until we reached 12th grade in high school. Yes, there are actually current students on our high school campus that had Mrs. Gallegos as one of their preschool teachers!
Monica was a lead teacher for many years before stepping into the assistant director and Master Teacher role. Drawing from her many years of experience, she mentors teachers to help them be the best they can be, helps implement curriculum, and supports teachers in navigating the different classroom dynamics. Mrs. Yslas has the heart of a servant, and a deep wisdom of the love of God. She loves spending time in the classroom and getting to build relationships with each child through patience, endurance and hope, seeing her time at Bradshaw as her mission for God’s Kingdom. Her faithfulness to God’s call has resulted in touching hundreds (and maybe even thousands) of children’s lives, and bringing them to know how loved they are by God.
Mrs. Yslas is truly a cornerstone of our preschool program. If you know her, you have been blessed by her! We are so thankful that God brought her to BCS 20 years ago and look forward to the years to come!
We surprised Mrs. Yslas by having each preschool class present her with a card or gift as well as notes and cards from BCS alumni and children on other campuses who had her in the past. She was blown away by the display of affection and love!
We love you, Mrs. Yslas!
