Additional experience: BA Calvin College; K-8 Spanish teacher at WSCS, Preschool teacher at WSCS
When children come into my classroom, I strive to make them feel safe and loved so that they can develop a love for learning and a love for God, which are building blocks for all future learning. I love seeing kids’ excitement and love for learning and watching them try new things, and I love the expressions on their faces when they have just learned or caught onto something! I so appreciate the children and families I work with here at West Side Christian School. The kids become like my own, and I value the relationships I’m able to build with their families. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children and I enjoy camping, sewing, and reading.
