They are amazing and have so much potential. I can't wait to see how they will impact the world for the Kingdom of God. I love seeing them grow and mature into loving and responsible young people." Mrs. Buckel is married to her husband, Micah, and she has a cat named Fig Newton. She hopes her students remember they are loved by God, are chalk full of His purpose, promise, and power, and there is no limit to what they can do with Him for His glory with their lives.
