This Monday, we would like you to meet Mr. Mario Raven, our TK-8th Music Teacher.
This is Mr. Raven’s first year teaching at Southlands Christian Schools, but he has been teaching music for over 10 years. “Every day is a party,” Mr. Raven said, when asked what he loves most about teaching music. “We [the students and he] have an incredible amount of fun together, and I love their positive spirits. This age group has very open minds that are so eager to be filled. I feel so honored to have been chosen to inspire God’s children,” he continued. “And I love those smiling faces.”
We love your smiling face, too, Mr. Raven! You can find Mr. Raven smiling not only when he teaches but also before he takes off on his cool, blue motorcycle. We were able to catch Mr. Raven on his fancy bike and ask him a few more questions before he took off:
Q: Give us ONE word to describe Southlands!
A: Home. This place is home.
Q: What have you been thanking God for these days?
A: I’ve been thanking God that He brought me to SCS, and I’m feeling very blessed.
Q: What are three fun facts about yourself?
A: 1. I love everything that has to do with nature: hiking, camping, etc.
2. I enjoy flying my professional drone.
3. I like going on adventures on my motorcycle.
Q: What’s your favorite passage from the Bible?
A: Ephesians 2:1-10. His grace is amazing.
We’ll be introducing a different Southlands staff member every Monday. Stay tuned!
