Episode 3 Michele Coats

Founder + Principal of El Paso Christian School


In this month’s episode, founder and principal of El Paso Christian School, Michele Coates, discusses with us what led her to start a classical private school after years as a teacher in the public school and how God paved the way to bring it to life. She also talks about her physical and mental journey along the way.

She discusses:
– God calling her when she least expected it- to do something that seemed unlikely and even impossible.
– God closing and opening doors in His timing and all of the ways He placed people in her path to help her in her weaknesses.
– The beautiful diversity on display in her school because of its location.
– Her physical health journey and why it was important for her to begin taking care of her temple to be able to accomplish all God has called her to.
