Don Shoemaker, pastor emeritus at Grace Community Church, a Charis Fellowship congregation in Seal Beach, Calif., has sent along news of two from the Seal Beach congregation who have been recognized.
Honoring “Teacher of the Year for 2021”
Teaching has been an especially challenging profession over the past 18 months. All the turmoil over Covid and other issues must not cause us to lose sight of the many quality teachers in our school systems. Cory Alfaro is one of these! She was named “Teacher of the year for 2021” by the Los Alamitos Unified School District, which includes Seal Beach.
A Good Word from the District: “She has been with us for 23 years, teaching drama at Laurel High before moving to Oak [Middle School] to teach English and Spanish. ‘I feel blessed to have a job that is my hobby, my passion, and my life’s work all rolled into one.’ Well done, Cory!”
Cory and her family are a faithful part of Grace Community Church of Seal Beach.
