Silvia Petit, High School Classroom Teacher for SpanishClassroom Teacher

BA, Central American Theological Seminary

Silvia is a native Spanish speaker, born in Guatemala, Central America. She lived in Mexico for 5 years and has traveled to El Salvador, Peru, and Spain. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from The Central American Theological Seminary.

Silvia came to the US in 2000 as a missionary to work at Salem Evangelical Free Church in Staten Island, New York. It is there that Silvia met and married her husband, Greg, in 2003. Her husband’s job led them to Wichita, KS in 2007, where they currently reside with their two children. Silvia enjoyed homeschooling their children, Erika and Andrew, from 2008-2016.

Silvia loves the freedom that homeschooling has to teach all subjects from a Christian worldview, even Spanish! She has enjoyed the opportunity to encourage and support homeschooling families with her knowledge and teaching gifts. She takes great pleasure in teaching people of all ages to speak her native tongue. Silvia has been tutoring/teaching Spanish successfully to individuals and several homeschool co-ops in the Wichita and surrounding areas since 2010. She is very excited for the opportunity to share her gifts and experience with many more students now through HSLDA.

She has been teaching with the Academy since 2017.
