“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” ~ Prov 3:5-6

Until 2002, I was all about leaning on my own understanding.  Since coming to saving faith in Jesus, however, I have learned that plans made through Him have such a better outcome than I could ever imagine!

I am blessed to have a wonderful husband of 28 years, and two sons who attend High School at ACS.  I have a BS in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University, but have always loved teaching – Sunday school, homeschool co-ops, wherever I could see the light bulb go off!  After homeschooling my two boys for 7 years, the Lord led us to ACS, which turned out to be a great “next step” in my sons’ educations, and an opportunity for me to teach in two areas I loved and had been teaching to homeschoolers and adults for many years: Robotics and Drama.

I have been involved in Community Theater since I was 9, doing everything from acting to directing to backstage and set building.  To me, drama class should be a fun, safe place where kids can try new things, and maybe find something inside themselves they didn’t know they had.

Robotics came into my life when my son wanted to take a class at age 7.  He loved it, and I subsequently became an assistant, and then a teacher in LEGO Mindstorms NXT/EV3 robotics.  At ACS, I have been excited to also work with FIRST FTC Robotics and help our High School team learn to build and program in a JAVA-based environment.

Julie Matthews

I graduated from Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA, majoring in Education and Social Studies and minoring in English. 

 

I am the mother of three beautiful girls who are each blessed with amazing husbands! Amongst the three of them, they have given me six wonderful grandchildren!

 

I taught for 13 years in Louisiana before moving to Texas where I taught in Fort Bend ISD and Houston ISD. I am returning to ACS for my fifty first year of teaching! 

 

I love to teach! Evidence?  I have retired twice but missed it so much that I am returning! 

 

It is my pleasure to partner with you in teaching your child this year. 

Donna Minshew

This is my eighth year at ACS. During my time here I have finished and received my Alternative
Texas Teacher Certification. In fact I renewed my certification for another five years. I have
taught math from the beginning of my time at ACS. I have been surprised to see how much I
had remembered from my own time in Jr. and Sr. high. That is saying a lot being I started my
professional teaching career at the age of 58. I have also taught Art, Bible and Health.
I graduated from University of Houston , Clear Lake in December of 2008. I had gone back to
finish my degree when my two sons started college after homeschooling them for 15 years. I
LOVE learning and hope to inspire that love in my students.
Church has always been a big part of my life. I was born again at the age of six. My youth group
and being a part of its leadership were very significant to me. After graduating high school in
1976, I attended Sam Houston University for two years. Later going to Word of Faith Bible
College in Dallas for two years. After returning home, I met my husband Tim, at church, and this
year we will celebrate our 40th anniversary. We have three children and five grandchildren.
I see myself not only as a teacher of academics, but also as a person who is able to speak truth
to my students. I know that I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach at Angleton
Christian School. I am able to share my faith and love for my Lord here. I can share what the
Word has to say about life and encourage my students to make right choices. I hope to teach
several more years and be a significant part of this wonderful school.

I enjoy encouraging people and building them up to see the best in themselves.

Robert (Bob) Hefner, Jr.

I am blessed to be a first-time teacher at Angleton Christian School (ACS) this year following retirement from The Dow Chemical Co. June 30, 2021 after 49.2 years as a Research Scientist.  During my career at Dow, 218 U.S. Patents and 63 published U.S. Patent Applications issued with me as inventor.  Additionally, I am author on 25 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  God truly guided and blessed my industrial career in an extraordinary way and I am excited to now give back some of what He taught me to the students at ACS. 

College credentials include a Bachelor of Science in Biology with minors in Business and Administration and Chemistry from Central Michigan University (magna cum laude, 1972) and a Master of Science in Chemistry from University of Houston at Clear Lake (summa cum laude, 1987).  Additional college-level chemistry courses were completed at Michigan State University (1972-1977), as well as New Testament Greek (koine) courses I and II from the Southern Baptist University (SBC) Seminary Extension Department (1989 - 1990). 

Past teaching experience includes mentoring students in chemistry (served as 2003 "Qualified Scientist" for a Brazoswood High School student that won 1st place in the Houston Regional Science Fair), Bible study/teaching/Christian leadership as a 6th grade Sunday School Director and Vacation Bible School (VBS) director, Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) Children’s Class Supervisor, and invited teacher for biblical archaeology and Roman/Jewish history in the local public school system.  In the Philippines I wrote and then taught a seminar on Industrial Thermoset Chemistry at Notre Dame of Marbel University (my wife’s college!) and Central Philippine University - College of Engineering.  My years of teaching adult Sunday school involved a personal research approach guided by the Holy Spirit, culminating in preparation and teaching 104 lessons on Revelation; in-depth lessons on the origin, transmission and preservation of Scripture; and numerous lessons on extra-biblical references to Jesus (for use in witnessing to those that refuse the Bible). 

I became a Christian in 1979 after God spoke to me one Saturday afternoon through Romans 2:4.  God has blessed me with an amazing family, my wife Ivy Jean, and our son, Luke, a student at ACS since pre-K3.  We live in Rosharon where we enjoy gardening, especially growing roses, and spoiling our senior aged cat, Anghel.  On Sundays, you will find us serving as greeters to encourage our fellow worshippers at Second Baptist Church - South Campus (Pearland).  The three of us are blessed to serve in the mission field in partnership with Marbel Baptist Church (SBC), our church in my wife’s hometown of Koronadal City, South Cotabato, Philippines.  The heart of our ministry there is feeding, clothing and providing school supplies for the endless number of needy children, teaching and preaching the Gospel when we are there in person, and helping to build satellite churches in the villages surrounding Koronadal City.  One of many favorite Bible verses has served as our guide for ministry and will continue to serve as my guide as a teacher: “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)

Brenda Jasper

I’m Brenda Jasper and I have been at ACS for over eight years, where I teach junior high science, technology classes, and I am the sponsor of the ACS Amateur Radio Club.

 

I am originally from Brownsville, Texas, but have lived in Brazoria County for the past 30+ years. Shortly after graduating from Texas Tech University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Business Administration, God had other plans for me. I returned to college to study education and began teaching in 1989. 

 

I have been an educator for close to 35 years. Eleven of those years I taught 5th and 6th grade in Brazoria, where I was teacher of the year in 1994. In 2000, I made the move to Stephen F. Austin STEM Academy in Jones Creek, where my son was entering kindergarten. There, I taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade during my 16 years there. Teaching junior high students was a new experience, but I am so happy God gave me this opportunity!

 

I have one child, Evan, who recently graduated from Texas A&M. Whoop! I enjoy gardening, woodworking, traveling, ham radio, and trying out new Mexican food dishes. I attend Columbia Methodist Church in West Columbia.

 

I love teaching at ACS where the students, parents, and staff are like a family. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach your child. I look forward to another fantastic year!

I joined the ACS family in January of 2018. I truly feel that God has brought me to this place, at this time, and I could not be more grateful to Him for this opportunity. I love being a part of this ministry and family. I have a Bachelor’s in Technology and Business Management. I teach Career Explorations,  Personal Finance, and Spanish 1 & 2. I also coach JH Volleyball. I am an active member of Life Foursquare Church in Angleton. I serve in the kids department, nursery, and on the media team. I am the proud mother of an amazing son. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. I love teaching, drinking coffee, and watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball.  I have seen God move in so many ways in my time with ACS, and cannot wait to see what more He has in store. 

2 Corinthians 12:9  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Samantha Flores

Hola ~ I’m Samantha! I was born and raised in Angleton and am honored to call this place home. I love going for a jog or bike ride and seeing half a dozen people I know along the way. I even live next door to the doctor who delivered me! #Homegrown through and through.

 

My husband John and I married in 2010 and we have had four children since then: Titus, Silas, Justus and our little cherry on top Mila. We enjoy spending our free time biking at Brazos Bend, swimming, keeping busy at our Home church, Life Foursquare Church and vacationing. I also love to bake, play chess, read and sew!

 

I see math as a puzzle and I am a puzzle lover. It is thrilling to witness and participate in those lightbulb moments when learners begin to crack the code and realize that math can be fun! I have a Masters degree in Learning and Technology and a Bachelors degree in Mathematics Education. Our four children attend ACS and we absolutely love the community and culture of the Warrior family

 

Titus 2:7-8

In everything, show yourself to be an example by doing good works. In your teaching show integrity, dignity and wholesome speech that is so above reproach, so that anyone who opposes us will be ashamed, having nothing bad to say about us.

"Coach Suzy" Ford

Aloha!
My name is Suzy Ford. I was raised in Angleton and graduated from Angleton High School in
1993. I come from a family of teachers/coaches, both my Dad and Mom worked for AISD. I have
been married to my husband, David Ford, for 15 years. We have 2 adult children from previous
relationships, Derrik Ford and Blayne Svoboda. Together we have 2 sons that attend ACS, Koi
Ford and Korbyn Ford.
ACS has been my home away from home for the last 8 years. I have had my hand in multiple
areas in those 8 years. I started as a secretary, then moved to teaching PK4, and for the last
four years I have had the ultimate pleasure of having the best job in the world… PE TEACHER!!
Other than teaching, I have been the Head Varsity Volleyball Coach for the last four years. I also
assist with Junior High Track. I have also coached girls’ basketball and softball in my years here
at the school.
Last year I was given the chance to teach a Yearbook class in High School. This was a
challenge I accepted, and I really enjoyed the outcome.
In my free time I am either at one of my kids’ sporting events or training volleyball with my
husband. We love to spend time with our family and take advantage of our lazy days. Our family
has attended Family Life Church in Lake Jackson for the past 7 years.
My favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6; “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your
own understanding. In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” God
sent me this verse when my Dad passed away in 2016. It gave me peace and comfort to know
that God is there for you to lean on, and to trust in Him that one day I will see my Dad again.
Looking forward to a wonderful year!!

Sloan Moyle

Born and raised on his family cattle ranch in Rosharon Texas, Sloan Moyle attended high school at Angleton High School and after graduation he transferred to  the University of Houston from Brazosport Community College  and graduated in 2019 with a Bachelors of Science in Sports Administration. 

 

He spent time in the professional sports industry, working for the Houston Sabercats Rugby Club, as well as the Sugarland Space Cowboys (the Triple A affiliate of the Houston Astros) pro sports became less fulfilling and after prayer and some help from his wife, he decided to go into Education. He will be teaching History and will also be coaching Cross Country and Track.

 

Sloan has been happily married to his wife Jordan for two years and they have been a couple for a little more than seven years. The couple spent their entire time in college together and not long after graduating he did what he called “the best decision I’ve ever made” and proposed. His favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 3:7 

 

So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.

Dr. Amy McBrayer

Professional Background

I taught high school Physics with Houston ISD for 8 years in my early twenties and have been an
adjunct professor with Brazosport College for 2 years. I have four college degrees from: SFASU
(B.S.), Grand Canyon U (M.Ed. Secondary Science), Bethany U. (M.A. Missions and Theology),
and Liberty University (D.Min. in Theology). My doctoral research and dissertation focused on
Angleton Christian School and the students of the class of 2025. ACS gave me opportunity to
pilot a World Religions course on Biblical Theology and Cultural Apologetics as part of my
research and is now a course elective available for Juniors and Seniors at ACS.

Personal Testimony

I am originally from Angleton and graduated high school from AHS in the early 2000’s. The Lord
provided a rich diverse upbringing, from my father growing up in Iran to my grandparents
spending more time in Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt than being stateside in Texas. I learned to
love all people of different cultures and backgrounds. I accepted Christ for myself at the age of
8 and was baptized when I was 12.


In my early mid-thirties, the Lord radically change the trajectory of my life and opened my eyes
to what He was doing right here in the Houston area, bringing many people of different faiths
and cultures here. Long story short, the Lord impressed on me to learn Arabic and to learn how
to share my faith cross-culturally with those who come predominantly from the Muslim faith.
Since then, I have had years of opportunities to speak truth lovingly though relational and
friendship-driven evangelism. The Lord has opened doors of opportunity for Gospel
conversations with many of my new Muslim friends. My love for the Arab world and for the
Arabic language has increased exponentially. The Holy Spirit has gone before me, in more times
than I can count, by opening doors once closed and opening hearts of Muslim families once
aggressive toward Christians and now willingly listening to the beautiful story of salvation
through Jesus.


God loves a Muslim the same, the day before they profess faith in Christ as He does the day
after. I know that I want to love them like God does and to take the Great Commission very
seriously. My hope and desire for the students at ACS is to educate and equip them how to
share the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ interculturally in their communities, after they graduate
at their universities, and for the rest of their lives.


When I am not teaching Physics, Public Speaking, and apologetics to ACS students through the
World Religions course, I can be found volunteering as a team lead in Houston with refugees
through the organization Houston Welcomes Refugees.


I’m not only a teacher at ACS but also a proud parent of two ACS students. Go Warriors!

Lauryn Mutina

I was raised in Angleton and graduated from Angleton High school in 2017. I attended Brazosport College and graduated with my Associates. I then transferred to The University of Houston-Clear Lake and graduated with my Bachelors in Business. I have always had a love for learning and constantly found myself wanting to go back to school. I strive to inspire young minds and ignite a love for learning.

I married my high school sweetheart, Mason. We have twin daughters, Blakelynn and Blair. I am the Children's Ministry Director at First Baptist Church in Angleton and we feel blessed to call that our church home and family. 

As a family, we love exploring the outdoors; from spending time in the pool during the summer to hunting in the fall.

This is my third year teaching at ACS. I am so grateful to serve here as a teacher. I also lead the Live Out Loud Bible study for secondary girls, sponsor the class of 2027, and I am the advisor for NJHS/NHS. I look forward to being a part of ACS for many years to come.

One of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Makenzie Moon

My name is Mackenzie Moon. I graduated from Danbury High School in 2006 and since then attended University of Houston Clear Lake and am currently finishing my Education Certificate at WGU. My husband, Steven and I have been happily married for 8 years, and live in Danbury. We have three boys who keep us busy. Brantley, our oldest son, is involved in showing livestock. He is currently showing heifers, pigs and chickens. When we are not working at the barn, you can find us on the basketball court, or baseball fields. I have coached Brantley's baseball team for the past 3 years and have loved it. I also have coached my 2 youngest son's basketball team for the past 2 years. We are active members of Community Baptist Church in Danbury. Serving the Lord is my passion, I currently serve in our youth group, I am in charge of our Annual Fall Festival, and Co-Direct VBS. I recently started teaching at ACS this past year and absolutely loved it. This year I will be teaching 6th, 7th and 8th Grade ELA. Working and ministering with the Youth is my passion. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to watch these children grow not only in the classroom, but in every aspect of their life. This year all three of my boys will be attending ACS! Go Warriors!!

John Slabinski

I became a teacher at ACS for two reasons. First, all three of my granddaughters attend school at ACS. Second, I have been blessed with the ability to intuitively understand mathematics. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in Nuclear Science and Engineering and a class rank of 1 out of 482 students. I have served as a senior manager in the field of nuclear engineering for the U.S. Government including five years at NASA. I will turn 75 in October of 2024. Teaching at ACS is a way for me to share this awesome blessing with every student who enters my classroom.

Nina Vrazel

My family moved back to Angleton when I was 13. I enjoyed being part of the Junior Mounted Posse and helping with our cows. I graduated from Angleton High School in 1972. Throughout the years I’ve worked for a lawyer, glass company, architect and adoption agency. My favorite job of all was driving a tractor bailing hay with my husband.

Joe and I had two sons born with special needs and we were blessed to adopt three more children (two daughters and one more son).

I decided to go back to college in 1995 and received my degree from the University of Houston Clear Lake in elementary mathematics and reading self contained grades 1st-8th. My plan was to start and end my teaching career at Danbury where I taught 4th-6th grade math and 6th grade science and social studies. I did end up retiring from there! One thing I am proud of is starting the Lego Robotics program there.

Fast forward to 2022 when I applied to be a sub at ACS which turned into a full time job in November of that year! It has been a true blessing that I did not realize I needed at the time. God works in mysterious ways! I’ve been a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church for over 50 years. I have worked with our youth (CYO), been a eucharistic minister and have been on several committees. 

In my free time I enjoy baking kolaches, cinnamon rolls, noodles, homemade bread and making jelly! I also enjoy quilting and sewing.
