Additional Experience:BA from Calvin College with additional grad classes at GVSU; Delavan Christian School in Wisconsin Middle School Teacher; Byron Center Christian Middle School Teacher
I find true joy in the time that I spend getting to know the students. I love to hear their stories and hear their thoughts. I love to see how each student is made in a unique way and then help them grow with their gifts and talents. I am inspired by seeing the students learn. When a student learns something new, I am inspired by their excitement. I am also inspired by compassion and watching students learn to care for each other. What a great place to see students become the hands and feet of Jesus.
I see God through my colleagues and through the students. He is visible in the excitement of learning and also in the community as we take care of each other.
I love Pinterest! I love to lead exploratories making crafts. I love to camp with my family. I have a heart for Guatemala. I have a heart for children who need love and families.
