GCA's Preschool Teacher
Amy was saved at a very young age. She was raised in a Christian home and attended Christian schools. She shared that she continues to grow, learn, and study more about God each day. She enjoys each day that God brings.
Mrs. DeYoung believes that each child needs to be educated with the love of God and treated as an individual.
She and her husband, Larry, have three daughters: Grace, Hope, and Faith.
She still enjoys sports, coaching her kids in their favorite sports, and hanging out with her family.
