The Butterfly House, so aptly named. It is brimming with precious little ones who are stretching their wings each day to see what new things they can discover. Just as much as it is the children who make it bright, the dedicated women who spend their days with these children are the ones who provide a safe, loving, nurturing environment for them.

Director, Kerry Hual, leads a team of excellent women to care for the children of the Butterfly House. One of these is Mildred Corvera. Originally from Bolivia, Mildred has received her Associate's Degree from Northern Virginia Community College and will complete her B.S. in Community Health at George Mason University this fall. She is an Assistant Teacher whose desire is to teach children about basic hygiene. TBH has been blessed to have her these past two years.

There is usually someone behind the scenes who makes an operation run smoothly. For the Butterfly House, that would be Juanita Sanchez. As the Associate Director, she works tirelessly to make sure the organization runs efficiently, not only looking out for the needs of the children, but taking care of the teachers who work there. She has numerous childcare certifications and has worked in the childcare field since 2001 as a teacher and program coordinator, as well as in her current position.

There are many more committed, experienced women who are entrusted with the care of the Butterfly House children. The Seminary is blessed to have such an exceptional team to teach and nurture our little ones.
