Marcea Pardus – School Secretary
Hello, my name is Marcea Pardus, and I am the School Secretary. I was born, raised and educated in South Pasadena, California. I have been married for 35 years, and have 2 grown children, and 3 grandchildren. I stayed home to raise my family, and when it came time for me to look for work, my goal was to get a job where I could do service and work with children in a Christian setting. In an answer to prayer, an opportunity to work as a school secretary at a Lutheran school in Pasadena was provided to me. I worked there for 9 years before arriving at Salem Lutheran School in the fall of 2009. I am thrilled to be at Salem Lutheran School in a Christ-centered learning environment that helps prepare the next generation of God’s Kingdom for service to our community and our world.
