TCS first grade students get an extra smile and warm welcome to school each day from Betty Perez, our first grade assistant. “Working at TCS is fun!” says Betty. “My role as a teacher’s assistant is full of variety. I enjoy being a resource and help in every way I can. My favorite thing about working at The Christ School is being able to see first-hand how the teachers take their time to nurture, teach valuable lessons and focus on God as the center of everything. I love seeing the children enjoying their lessons and how they actively participate.”
Betty was born in the city of Mayaguez, located on the West Coast in Puerto Rico. “I moved to Rochester, New York, when I was 16 years old,” says Betty. “In Rochester, I met my husband, who was my high school sweetheart. Together, we have two wonderful children, who are both grown. My first born, Michelle, is married and lives in California. My son, Sean, is in college. When I’m not working, I like to go camping, boating and spend time with family.”
Betty shares her favorite Bible verse:
Certainly, you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. – Psalm 139:13
“This verse reminds me that God has been always present in my life,” says Betty.
