Rachel Sutton began her journey as a Francophile when a senior in high school. The church she attended had several sister churches in southern France. Several mission trips, a special proposition of marriage by her guy in Paris, correspondence with French friends through the years, arranging DFW tours for visiting French friends, and hosting several friends for summer terms, her love of France continues. Though she is not fluent in French, she is conversationally fluent. In the vein of classical education, Rachel is a ever a student of the language as she is teaching her students. She is a graduate of Texas Wesleyan University with a B.S. in Christian Education with an emphasis in chaplaincy. She has been married for almost 30 years to Jim Sutton and is mother to four wonderful children, each of whom have been students at the Center.
