Lead Teacher: Claudio Celino
Pastor Claudio Celino has been married to his wife Claudia since 1988. When asked about the similarity of their names, he always mentions how God has made them perfectly for each other – right down to the name! After many years as a senior analyst at a worldwide tech company, Claudio answered God’s call to work as a full time missionary. There, he worked spreading the love of our Lord to isolated fisherman throughout the Brazilian shoreline.
After going through seminary, Claudio worked briefly with the Salvation Army in California. Like most sensible people, Claudio soon made his way to the great state of Texas. In Texan soil, he has served the Lord in Ministry in two different churches. Now, Pastor Claudio Celino considers it a privilege to serve the Lord by caring for our students as part of the E3 Academy family.
Teacher: Pedro Celino
Since working with the students of Bible Baptist Church a few years ago, Pedro fell in love with the privilege of leading youth to the Lord. When God sent him in other directions, he followed Him with a heavy heart but an understanding it was God’s will and he must obey. True to God’s character, the Lord gave Pedro an opportunity to follow in his desire for ministry by opening up the doors to be a part of the E3 Christian Academy team and he is very excited about the year that is ahead.
In his opinion, his greatest accomplishment is to have married his beautiful bride Cheyenne in 2016. In his free time, Pedro spends time writing books and playing with his dog, Ghost.
Administrator: Rhonda Burns
Rhonda has a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Texas and taught in a Christian School for about 15 years. She has also worked for 17 years at a touch screen company and currently serves there as the International Sales Manager. Her desire is to be in full time ministry but is grateful that she has an opportunity to serve as Administrator for the school in a part time capacity for now. Her love and passion for this school is to see lives transformed through the power of God’s Word.
Rhonda was a single mom of three children and knows what it is like to not have the financial resources for a Christian Education. Her passion is to reach those who are less fortunate with the gospel of Christ and to instill hope where life’s hardships have tried to steal it. Sometimes families just need a break in life. They need someone to come alongside their children and provide a quality education that is Christ centered. She is happy to be a part of a school that wants to do just that.
One of her greatest joys in life is to spend time with her seven grandchildren from 4 weeks old to 15 years old and is thrilled that there is a new one on the way! What a joy they are in her world. She is grateful for the work of God in the lives of her family members and desires to pass on the hope of Jesus Christ to all who cross her path. What a privilege it is for her to serve at a school with the same vision.
Ignitia Architect: Meagan Woolstrum
Billy is the father of one of our 5th graders. He comes faithfully every day to cover two lunch breaks so that our teachers can enjoy a quiet break on their own. He is always willing to help in any capacity we need him to. We so appreciate his love for our students and his willingness to serve so sacrificially. He has a great relationship with the kids and is loved by all!
Annie has been such a blessing to our school and church. She has done a lot of decorating to make our building so inviting. She also has done a lot of work in our library as she logs in books. She is so quick to volunteer on anything that is needed. She goes above and beyond in all that she does, including making spaghetti for us all to enjoy! We are so grateful for her selfless acts of service.
Jesse is BBCpf’s youth pastor. He has given of his time every Monday morning to lead the staff in a devotion. His words and prayers have been such an incredible blessing to us. He also comes and spends time in the classroom with the students as his schedule permits. His leadership has had such a positive impact in such a short time, especially in handling our chapels. We love having him a part of our family.
Patricia is the mother of two of our students. Though she works part time, she always makes time to help our school out in any way that is needed. She accompanies the students on field trips, participates in mile runs with them, helps with Spanish class and has subbed for the school whenever needed. She is a Godly example for our students to look up to and we appreciate her so much.
