Additional experience: BA Hope College/special education
Teaching has always been a large part of my family, and I grew up always wanting to teach. Building relationships with my students inspires me each day, as well as having the opportunity to weave my faith into each of the subjects that I teach. Being able to do that here at West Side Christian brings me so much joy, and I strive for each child that passes through my door to feel loved and valued by God, and by me. Having grown up in Holland, I love being in and around the water and enjoy boating, beach days, and walking along the lake as well as hiking, biking, playing tennis, and spending time with family and friends. I’m also looking forward to getting married next June.
