Hello! My name is Marisela Salinas and I am the Children’s Discipleship Director at Violet Crown. I was born in Hidalgo, Mexico and moved to Austin, TX in early elementary school.
I have a B.S. in Human Development and Family Sciences from the University of Texas, Austin, and I will be receiving my teaching certificate in the Spring 2018. I am also currently a literacy tutor at various AISD elementary schools.
I enjoy working with children because they are funny, smart and creative. It is my passion to serve the children in our church and community, teaching them about Jesus Christ our Savior. I want them to feel loved the same way we are loved and cared for by God.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
