We are part of about 100 staff that care for and educate our students. The staff come from a wide range of backgrounds and places. Many of the staff come from North America but there are people from South Korea and the UK. No matter where they come from everyone has a vision for caring for the children of missionaries. We have spent several years being dorm parents, teachers, coaches, and administration at RVA.
