Hi! My name is Lis Potts and I graduated from Wheaton College in 2012 with a BA in Elementary Education and Spanish. Prior to Muskegon; Holland, MI; Wheaton, IL; and Managua, Nicaragua have held special places in my heart and have been a form of home to me. After graduating, I worked for three months with a ministry called Villa Esperanza teaching English and tutoring girls who grew up in their city garbage dump. I came back to the states in December and taught Spanish for a semester in my hometown of Holland. Since then, I have been teaching 4th grade at MCS. I absolutely love kids and love watching and helping them learn and grow. It is truly a joy to work in a Christian school; I feel blessed being able to talk openly about Christ with my students, pray with them, help them walk closer to the Lord each day, and learn what it means to bring shalom to the chaos in our world. Working in a classroom is an amazing gift; I feel called to teach, but I learn so much from my students in return.
Some special Bible verses to me are Philippians 4:6-7, Jeremiah 29:13, and Psalm 62: 1-2.
Scripture verse: “Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.” Psalm 62:1-2
