Jacqueline Gwin

My name is Jacqueline Gwin, and I am honored to be the School Director of BCUMCS. Although I am relatively new to the school, I have been in the education field for 19 years.  In 2008, I graduated from SHSU with a degree in Early Childhood Education and Development.  Since then, I have worked as a Preschool teacher, Assistant Director, Director, Trainer/Mentor, and as a Master Teacher in Classical English and Latin for 7th & 8th graders. I am married with four children, and I do not have a hobby...but I will one day when things are not so busy! I believe that each child learns best when they are loved and understood. Children develop at different speeds in different ways and by using different teaching methods.  I look forward to moving on to the next 37 years of BCUMCS, and I am thankful for all of the support of our parents, church, staff, and community!
