Mother’s Day Out Teacher / Staff Spotlight
Lisa Valchar
This week we feature our beloved teacher of our two year old class, Lisa Valchar. Lisa and her awesome aide, Mrs. Cat, provide a joyful and fun classroom for their nine little friends. This is Lisa’s third year teaching at FUMC and we are so blessed to have her on our team! Working with children has always been a joy for Lisa and she worked for five years at Austin Regional Clinic as a pediatric Medical Assistant before joining FUMC. Lisa has lived in Taylor for the past 30 years and she and her husband, Kenny, have four children, ages 26 to 10 years old. Lisa also has two grandchildren: a nine year old grandson and a four month old granddaughter. Lisa is a member of Temple of Praise Church and loves sharing God’s word with her class by teaching them to pray, share, forgive, help, and love each other like Jesus loves us! Thank you, Mrs. Lisa for all that you do for our two year olds! We love that God chose you to be our two year old teacher!
