Office Staff

Janet Edwards

UCELC Director

I have had the joy of serving as a Director of preschools for over 20 years. In that 20 years, I have assisted and encouraged staff as they advanced themselves in their professional development in working with children.
I am blessed to work with an awesome staff that is nurturing and passionate about developing the whole child. It is my desire that we instill the love of Christ in little ones and create in them a hunger for learning.

Finance & Student Registration

I have been happily married to my husband Paul since 1990. Being raised Air Force, it is wonderful to say that Oviedo has been home since 1995. In the fall of 1995, I came to UCELC as a parent of two-year-old, Mitchell. I volunteered at all of the day/evening events and loved the Christian environment that was given to both my son and myself. My daughter, Madison, entered UCELC in 1998, and I began to substitute as needed. The following year I came onto Staff and have found a wonderful Christian family that grows with each passing year. I have always volunteered at my children’s schools, but my heart is at UCELC. I believe there is a gift that can be given to a young child that is so easily accepted with no doubts, and UCELC is an excellent opportunity to instill in a child a love for our savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to every day and am thankful every night for all that I have. I look forward to each new year.

Karen Sanchez

Program Coordinator

I was born in Buffalo, NY and moved to Oviedo at age 9. I graduated from Oviedo High School (where I met my husband), and then attended Florida State University for 2 years before graduating from the University of Florida. As a “Semi-Gator”, I get along with everyone! ;)

I’ve been married since 2006 and have 2 beautiful children. We are truly blessed to have had our kids go through the preschool program here at UCELC. It is a joy to see how this school has impacted the academic and spiritual lives of our own children, their classmates, and each preschool family. I am delighted to be on staff and involved in the continued success of this great program!
