The children’s enthusiasm, motivation, joy, laughter, and excitement to learn inspires me, and I receive so much joy from watching them learn and grow throughout the year. It is a gift to be able to teach the children about Jesus and His great love for each of them. My goals are that the children will not only grow in knowledge throughout the year, but that they will also grow spiritually. I want to ensure that each and every child feels valued and appreciated as a child of the Lord. I hope that the children will learn how to love God with all of their hearts, and that it will be evident through their learning and their actions. My husband Josh and I live on the West Side of Grand Rapids and we have a son Noah, as well as daughter Caroline who is in our hearts. I love to take walks, bake, read, and spend time enjoying the outdoors.
