Meet the Staff 


Carmen Magray

Teacher - Grades K-2

Before I began teaching at AJA, I had the privilege of attending AJA as a student for 10 years. I enjoyed my experience here, so when the opportunity arose in 1997, I applied for a teaching position. I have
taught grades K-8 and some 9-10 th grade classes as well. However, the majority of my time has been in grades K-4. I currently teach grades K-2. I graduated from Andrews University with a B.S. in Elementary Education and then later received my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree. I have received Orton-Gillingham Comprehensive training through IMSE and am currently participating in an Orton Gillingham practicum to be certified in the methods of Orton-Gillingham. This will continue to enhance my ability to teach reading using explicit, direct instruction that is sequential, structured, and multi-sensory.


Hi, I’m Mrs. Sloan. I have been a teacher for 5 years! Before I moved to Green Bay, I taught in Indiana and Ohio. I have served the most amazing kids ranging from grades 1-12. I have enjoyed teaching grades 2-6 the most so I love what I’m doing here at AJA. My greatest goal is to help every child see Jesus in my classroom. I received my Bachelor’s from Union College and am pursuing a Masters from the University of Southern Indiana. When I’m not teaching, I like to go on long walks with my husband, Zach. We also enjoy trying new kinds of foods at new restaurants.

Vanessa Sloan

Teacher - Grades 3-6


Amy grew up in Wisconsin and has always loved church. But when she took part in student missionary, work she said, "I became more excited about ministry and finding ways to serve. Through this I grew to love Jesus ore and more." Amy studied theology and graduated with her Masters of Divinity from the seminary at Andrews University. She loves learning and ministry, and is excited to serve as a teacher because it allows her to do both! 2021 is Amy's first year as a teacher and she is doing great so far!

Hello! I am the new teacher's aide here at AJA. I get to work in Mrs. Sloan's room, Mrs. Magray's room, and Mrs. Moreno's room. I love what I do and look forward to going to work every morning.
