Additional experience: BA Calvin College; MA Western Michigan University; fifth and sixth grade teacher
I am motivated by students making discoveries in God’s world, both educational and spiritual. I am inspired when students show love to each other in the classroom, with their kindergarten buddies, and in God’s world. I find joy in teaching them how God cares for each one of them. I also teach my students to see God in his creation and in each other. My goal is to build a Christian community in my classroom and to build relationships with others while learning about the awesome world God has made. I live in Hudsonville with my husband, and I have 2 children that attended WSCS. I enjoy running, exercising, and one of my hobbies is scuba diving. I enjoy trying new foods from other cultures. My goal is to keep working to be a better teacher and share Jesus with my students every day!
