Additional experience: Associates degree/Grand Rapids Community College in business; BA/Calvin College in elementary education, math, & science; taught 7th grade science and 8th grade algebra.
I am inspired by seeing the “aha” moment when a student gets something for the first time, and one of my goals for my students is that they each feel as though they belong. I enjoy being able to share my faith openly with students, staff, and parents here at West Side Christian. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing golf and basketball, racing sailboats, and watching hockey, football, baseball, and basketball. I also enjoy spending time with family both inside and outside, especially my wife Katie, daughter Mia, and son Kade.
