Celebrating the Butterfly House

Date: May 15, 2024

There is so much that I admire about the hardworking staff of the Seminary. Every department has exceptional, hardworking staff who are making a difference. And today, I wish to recognize the staff in the Butterfly House.

Caring for children is complicated. Appropriately enough, there are code requirements, regulations, and inspections. We do not simply provide childcare, but an amazing educational experience. The teachers have made getting credentials a priority. It is a solid team that does remarkable work.

Sometimes, this work gets complicated, and there is some stress in the system. So today, I want to celebrate the amazing work of the Butterfly House. And I thank the director Juanita Sanchez and the assistant director Shauna Gonzalez and her team. Thank you for everything you are doing.
