Teresa Schaetzka is the 'Jill of all trades' aka the Registrar at Indiana Academy in Cicero, IN. Teresa is an office aficionado who is driven by a strong work ethic and insane organizational skills. This all takes second place to her true passion and calling which is helping young people feel heard, loved, special and prepared for the future. Teresa always has tissues and forms available at the drop of a hat.
Teresa's burden for young people extends into young adult ministry. As a young adult herself she's recognized how young adults sometimes have a hard time finding their place in the church. Working with Cruise with a Mission has empowered her and she wants to share the experience with others. She recognizes that it encourages young adults to be themselves and minister to those in and outside of the church.
Do you have a sweet tooth? Teresa is the person you need to befriend, as she has perfected many baked goods and has a generous heart. Teresa is often traveling to see friends and family across the country, enjoying any location but giving preferential treatment to large bodies of water and mountains. Teresa is a thoughtful and caring spirit, who is always willing to help anyone, anytime.
