In addition to eating lots of sushi, pondering the mysteries of the universe, and making friends at William Jessup University, Jared also graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Intercultural Studies and a minor in Bible & Theology. During his time there, Jared led worship and developed teams at the University and Bayside Church.
And while Jared (that’s me) was told these bios are usually written in third person, it feels a tad unnatural… so if you want more information, you’re going to have to twitter stalk him (@jfujishin) on that new fangled internet machine, or we can get together and share a cup of coffee (and by “share” of course I mean separate cups, because I’m very “germ conscious”).
Jeremae Reyes received her BA from Long Beach State University and her teacher education coursework at Biola University. She will be joining our staff as the new middle school Science teacher. She was born and raised in Long Beach and although an only child she has a God given passion for teaching children. She has experience as YMCA youth leader, a substitute teacher in the Long Beach Unified School district, and has taught robotics in Compton Public Schools.
She loves going to Disneyland and drinking coffee but top of her list is her love for God. She loves to sing and was on her home church worship team. Moving to Scotts Valley will be a big change for this Southern California native but she is excited to meet our students and start a new adventure here at Baymonte Christian School.
Amy Bootz earned her BA in Speech Communication and her CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Since her college days, Amy has worked in a number or positions that align with her deep passion: teaching kids while helping them grow in their relationship with Jesus.
After hitting the trails as a Naturalist at Mount Hermon, she taught for 6 years at San Jose Christian Middle School. From there, Amy was led to work in a local church, where she directed the children’s ministry for the past 8 years. This year Amy is thrilled to jump back into the classroom to teach Middle School Spanish, Drama and 6th grade Science Lab.
Amy and her college sweetheart, Josh, have two energetic, adventurous boys, Eli and Brenden and a Golden Retriever named Belle. Amy loves long chats over coffee, running in Henry Cowell with Belle and exploring the incredible outdoors in all kinds of crazy ways with her family.
