Founder, Instructor, BA
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 13 to 25 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 decided to start a dog breeding business. It has been quite a learning experience and life-changing to say the least. It has become a successful enterprise and has been quite a learning opportunity. Mayra has homeschooled her children since kindergarten. Two have graduated from college. Two are in college. This year, two will be in high school. The last few years the Bremer family have 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, 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.
