“For it is by GRACE you
have been saved…”

Ephesians 2:8


Raquel Searcy

Gracie’s Preschool has been a very special place for me and my family. My two boys are Gracie’s grads and this is now my 5th year as a VPK teacher.  I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, lived in Washington D.C., and later moved to Florida to pursue a Graduate Degree at the University of Florida…GO GATORS!  This is where I met my better half, Brad, a native Floridian.  We have been married for 17 years and have 3 children: Maria Teresa, Benjamin, and Lucas.  I have been working with kids for over 10 years and have taught Conversational Spanish to both adults and children.  I enjoy volunteering with the whole family in the Children’s Ministry at my church, traveling, reading, and gardening.
