I am thrilled to join the Allendale Christian family as the new second grade teacher! I am originally from Ann Arbor but I love Ohio State- go Buckeyes! In my free time I like watching and playing sports (especially volleyball and baseball), hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach, reading, and working on various art projects. I am also getting married in June 2017 so I will be spending my free time planning our wedding.
I graduated from Grand Valley State University in April 2016 with Elementary Education and English degrees. During my time in college I found my church home at Crossroads Bible Church in Grand Rapids and I love it!
My faith and teaching are very close to my heart so I love that I get to integrate them every day. It is my greatest pleasure to learn more and more about how to follow Jesus from Jesus’ youngest followers. Becoming a teacher has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember so I am excited to have the opportunity to teach at Allendale Christian!
