I
Hi! My name is Elsu Mathew, and I have been a teacher at Riverside for 6 years. Before that, I worked at another school for 8 years. Throughout these 14 years, I have enjoyed working with small children teaching them English. I especially like being at Riverside because it is a Christian school, which means I can incorporate my faith into the stories I tell my students and to touch the Hindu parents and community. I love playing games with my 28 students, 21 of whom are untouchables. I grew up in another state called Kerala, where my mom taught me to enjoy life and to always serve God. Please pray for me; that I would be able to fully do God’s ministry, and that I will trust Him with my future, as I wish to get married and have a family of my own. God bless!
