School of Education
Mrs. Janelle Coleman chose teaching as a career after witnessing the impact that both her mother and grandfather had on their students. She joined the Maranatha School of Education Faculty in 2013. Prior to that, she was a preschool and elementary teacher and had several years’ experience as a childcare assistant. Mrs. Coleman is the advisor for the Early Childhood Education program.
“I love the students! It is a joy to invest in this next generation of teachers, so that they can go and impact young children. Psalm 145:4 is my verse for this year, ‘One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.’” – Janelle Coleman
