Grace Preschool, LLC has two directors, Rick Stone and Kendra Fox. Rick is the Administrator and Missions Director at GCC and also provides oversight of the preschool program. For more information on Rick, please go to the GCC staff profiles here.
Kendra Fox runs the daily affairs of the preschool. She is a native Texan whose roots began just a few miles from Glen Rose in the town of Granbury. In 2002 Kendra received a bachelor's degree in Art History at the University of Maine. It was there that she met her husband, Kevin Fox, and began a family. After they finished school the couple moved from Old Town, Maine to Austin, Texas. Kendra stayed at home and worked part-time as a substitute teacher for Grades K-12th. Through the years their family has grown to include three beautiful daughters. Experiences with children's teaching and ministering include substituted teaching, director of a children's ministry, and currently the director of a preschool since 2008. She is overjoyed to work with such precious children and alongside a family of believers who love the Lord with all their heart, soul mind, and strength.
Grace Community Church is blessed to have such dedicated and God-centered leadership to equip the next generation to delight in God's glory and minister to children and their families.
Sonja Mausser - Whale Class Teacher
"I am first a child of God, a wife to an amazing man, and a mom to 2 beautiful children. We moved from California 3 1/2 years ago and have been blessed by finding Grace Community Church. Prior to having children of my own, I taught preschool children on and off for 7 years. God has given me a love to teach and I feel blessed to be able to share God's word to the next generation. Last year was my first year at Grace Preschool as a full time teacher. Since the beginning my son has attended and I have been a substitute helping out from time to time. I am very excited to see what God will do in the coming years at Grace and I am honored to be a part."
Lauren Braswell - Frog Class Teacher
"I am very excited to teach your children this upcoming year at Grace Preschool. I am 23 years old and have been going to GCC for about 5 years. I have been a Sunday school and VBS director/teacher. I have also helped with Good News Club at the Elementary School. The past 3 years God has given me the desire to go to China to teach English and every year has been an amazing experience. God has given me a love for children and teaching them in Biblical ways. I am very excited to see what the Lord has planned for this year!"
Paula Satterfield - Monkey Class Teacher
"I have been a mom for 14 years now with a total of four children (8 thru 14) and a preschool teacher for the past five years, all with Grace Preschool. I am in awe of what God has done with our preschool and the opportunities He has blessed us with in reaching out to our beautiful community. I love teaching the little ones as I am a visual thinker and they can not yet read so we do most everything in pictures - it is a perfect fit, for me at least. Seeing their little faces light up with a 'job well done' is my joy and to glorify Him is my purpose in ministering to the next generation."
Bekah Turner - Teacher's Assistant
Bekah joined our staff for Fall 2009. She is a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Bekah has taught at the Vacation Bible School held each summer by Grace Community Church. She has also served for the past 3 years with the after school Good News Club progam held at the elementary school.
Alison Yuille - Teacher's Assistant
Alison Yuille grew up in Ontario, Canada. She completed her BA at Brock University and BEd at Trent University. She married Stephen in 1991. They have two daughters, Laura and Emma. Alison and Stephen were missionaries in Portugal from 1995-2000. Before moving to Glen Rose in 2009, Alison taught at Rhema Christian School in Ontario. This is her third year serving at Grace Preschool and she is looking forward to teaching young hearts the truths of our great God.
Ginger Elliff - Substitute
"Hello, my Husband, Daniel and I have been attending Grace Community Church since 2008 and are members here. We are so grateful to The Lord for His mercy each day and how Christ's grace is so beautifully displayed among the people and families here. The commitment to teach God glorifying character traits, and being considerate of others, is a huge growing blessing in our family. Our sons have had the privilege in receiving these precepts of God and we have greatly been blessed in our relationships with each other. Our whole family is continually strengthened by the Christ centered principals in His sufficient Word, which is encouraged to be obeyed here by loving people. This is why I desire to teach for the third year here at Grace Preschool because it is such a wonderful joy to see the peace and love that God grants to these little ones. It's a honor to minister to our community in return, in a way that has been given to our family. We are happy to meet you, and look forward to getting to know you and your children better. God bless you!"
