Nemari Picazo is passionate about investing into the hearts of her students. Her approach is unique, and her love for teaching is profound. You will almost always find her greeting each of her students at the door with a high-five before class starts, and finding creative ways to teach her lessons.

This is Nemari's 8th year teaching, and 3rd year here at Cornerstone. She loves exploring, adventuring, and spending time with her family, including her four little nephews - three of whom attend Cornerstone! Nemari's hope is that she can be an effective teacher and example, showing her students that they can love learning and truly succeed if they put God first in all that they do.

For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.

Anthony Ruiz loves the Lord and is thrilled to share that love with the students and families of Cornerstone Christian. He and his wife Claire have a dog named Ruby Tuesday on a Sunday Morning.

Mr. Ruiz is a huge San Jose Sharks fan and says that tickets as a form of homework pass are always encouraged. He plans on changing the world one student at a time - or by becoming Spider Man.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
