Tonya Mechling is truly excited to have the opportunity to lead young people to Jesus here at Palisades Christian Academy. She loves teaching and thrives in the classroom setting. Her experience includes mostly teaching Grade 4, but she has also taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. She is passionate about character development, and she strives to bring God into the classroom. When Tonya isn’t teaching, she savors moments in her garden and time with friends and family. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not too arm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
