Mrs. Mayra Bremer
Mayra Bremer was born in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico. She is the youngest of 11 children. She has been married to Garrett for 25 years. They have 6 children ranging from 15 to 27 years of age. Mayra moved to Pasadena, California, in 1982 to attend Ambassador College, a Christian university where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a major in Theology. Mayra worked in the editorial field for 15 years as a copyeditor and editor of Spanish religious publications. She also did freelance translating and editing for several years. About 15 years ago, Garrett and Mayra started a professional dog breeding business. Mayra is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in TESOL from Azusa Pacific University.
Mayra has homeschooled her children since kindergarten. Three have graduated from college. In the last few years, the Bremer family has taken advantage of co-ops and other schools for homeschoolers so the kids have more social interaction in their teen years, a necessary and very important part of their development. Mayra has taught Speech, Spanish, Personal Finance, P.E., and Computer Basics. She has an interactive teaching style, so students learn and develop social skills while achieving their academic goals.
Together with her husband Garrett, they have founded Nexus Family Ministries - a Homeschool Fellowship to promote social interaction through dancing during the homeschool years and beyond, a place where homeschooling families (both children and parents) can fellowship with other homeschooling families even after they have finished homeschooling their children.
