Mrs. Cardenez has taught Spanish in VCA’s lower school for 10 years. She started out at VCA as a Room Mother and PTF member from 1992 until 2000. She became a staff member in 2001 and has taught Pre-K3 and Pre-K4, and has served as Kindergarten Assistant, After Care Supervisor, and Summer Camp Supervisor.
Mrs. Cardenez’s favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I now the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” She believes that the Lord gave her the desire and the patience to work with children. It brings her joy to be able to teach them. Mrs. Cardenez and her husband, Ray, have four children: Joshua, David, Angelina, and Daniel. They are all graduates of VCA. Mrs. Cardenez’s hobbies are gardening, reading, and walking in the park. Victory Fellowship is the Cardenez family’s church home.
