Ivani McAleer is from Brasilia, Brazil and has a B.A in English from William Tyndale College and Post-Baccalaureate in Teacher Education from Eastern Michigan University. Her favorite bible verse is Psalm 139 as it powerfully reminds her of our worth.

My driving force in the classroom is summarized in this quote by Bernard of Clairvaux: “there are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge, that is curiosity; there are those who seek knowledge to be known by others, that is vanity; there are those who seek knowledge in order to serve, that is love”. I love serving as an educator and pray that I can instill in my students the desire to seek God’s glory and His presence, not just as believers but also as disciples of Christ.”
