Mark Potter

What do you love about teaching at Immanuel?   It feels like working with a family.  So many parents and staff treat me like family, and it feels like the kids are an extension of that family.  

Why did you decide to become a teacher?  I decided to become a teacher after taking several mission trips in college.  On one of those trips I was told by the missionary about the need for teachers to teach missionary kids.  I discovered there are MK (missionary kids) schools all over the world.  God led me eventually to the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

What do you like to do in your spare time?     I like to travel, read, and write.  I have been to 33 countries.  I have no idea how many books I have read.  I started writing when I was a kid.  Several of my novels were started decades ago, but only recently were published.  To date, I have seven novels. 

What does following Jesus meant to you?     I grew up in a Christian family, but met Jesus as my personal savior at 18, not many months after graduating from High School.  Following Jesus has been an amazing adventure.  He has turned a shy boy into a man that has experienced more than I ever could imagine in so many places I never dreamed of.  Jesus is my hope of eternal salvation, my comforter, and guide.  Without Him, I am nothing.
