Jennifer Chavez

Jennifer has served as the director of Grace Lutheran Early Education (GLEE) since 2015. Having attended preschool at Grace as a four-year-old, she understands how important it is for teachers to pour the love of Christ into the hearts of children. Her teachers at Grace were able to plant seeds in her that would one day lead her back to Grace to teach in the classroom before eventually becoming the director. Jennifer is passionate about being able to provide hands on, age appropriate learning opportunities to children in a safe and loving environment.

She has spent the last 19 years with her husband, Richard, chasing after their five children, who all attended GLEE for preschool. She graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelors of Science. She looks forward to finding new, fun ways of bringing the love of Christ to the teachers and families at Grace Lutheran and GLEE.  One of her favorite verses to share is Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
