Miss Alisa is a Santa Maria native and a graduate of Valley Christian Academy. She recently graduated from Maranatha Baptist University in Wisconsin. "I am so excited to be back in Santa Maria and teaching in the 2 year old class at Valley Christian Preschool!" When not teaching, she enjoys reading, going to the beach, and eating Panera Bread and tacos every chance she gets. Miss Alisa also teaches children's church and in the church nursery at First Baptist Church. Her biggest joy and blessing comes from traveling and mission work. She has been on missions trips to Brazil, Israel, China, and most recently Alaska, helping the people there learn about Jesus. "I love the 2 year olds and I am looking forward to what God does in my class this year."
