GARDEN SCHOOL AFTERCARE
GARDEN SCHOOL AIDE
Sabrina Wu grew up in Taiwan and realized she had a love for teaching when she was in college. In 1999, she came to the US to get her MBA from the University of Dallas. There she met her husband, Tuck. They have two sweet kids, Ianna and Ethan. In 2013, they moved back to Malaysia where Sabrina had a chance to teach special needs children at a Christian school. During this time, she learned about the different abilities God has given children and with patience how to help each child grow according to their greatest abilities.
Claiming God's Word, "Be strong and courageous, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" Sabrina's family moved back to Houston in 2018. In 2020 God brought Sabrina to BCA.
"Berean is a blessing in my life because I am working with a team that is passionate for God." God continues to guide her where she can help and who she can pray for in our schools.
