Mrs. Beth Jarosinski                    

Beth Jarosinski is our part-time Office Assistant and leads Grace Christian Academy's Fundraising Team.  Beth and her husband, Brad, have been with the school since the first year it opened, when their oldest child was only in 1st grade.  They fell in love with GCA's mission upon meeting with the school's founder, Jaime Jackson, less than 2 months before GCA opened its doors for the first time.  Beth loves the GCA family and is committed to the school's mission of leaving a legacy of walking with Christ, which fuels every ounce of effort she puts into fundraising events and service to the school.  God has placed this educational ministry on Beth's heart to faithfully serve wherever there is a need.  Beth and her husband, Brad, have four children who all attend the academy.

Ms. Nicole Jacques                         

Nicole Jacques is our primary elementary educator for levels 2-4.  Nicole has her associate’s in Early Childhood Education and spent 3 1/2 years teaching 4-year olds at a child care center.  The time with child care has allowed her to get hands on experience while also learning from the other teachers in the field.  She has enjoyed the years of investing into children's lives and watching them grow to love learning.  Now she is excited to not only teach children how to read and write, but to teach them the eternal truths from God's Word--discipling them to leave a legacy of walking with Christ.  Nicole first heard about the school through the Kieler family whose children attend GCA.  She then became involved with volunteering for enrollment nights and was really impressed by the school’s mission and dedication towards God's will.  “I am very excited that the Lord opened the door for me to teach here!  It is an honor to be a part of His working hand in this ministry and watching the Lord move in our students hearts!”

Mr. Brian Nejedlo                  

Brian Nejedlo is our primary Jr. High educator for levels 5-8.  Mr. Nejedlo has a long history of teaching, mentoring, and working in ministry.  He taught at Denmark High School from 2000 to 2004, during which time he had the privilege of meeting and working with Jeremie Johnson, our school Administrator.  The two became fast friends and maintained their relationship well after Brian left teaching to pursue other opportunities. During that time period, Jeremie Johnson became involved with Grace Christian Academy and brought the school to Brian’s attention.  Brian’s dream of involvement in a Christian school was awakened!  In looking back, Brian says, “It is pretty clear to me now that God was orchestrating a plethora of events, dating back to 2004 and leading right up to the present, to bring me to my current situation--teaching full-time at GCA.  I have no doubt that God will obtain great glory for Himself and provide me with the opportunity to testify to others of His greatness.”
