I live in the great town of Allendale. I have six children and 16 grandchildren. I worship at First Allendale CRC where I have had the privilege of being a Childrens’ Worship Leader. I work at Keegstra’s Dollar Store on the days I am not at Allendale Christian.
I attended Holland Christian High School and then went on to Calvin College where I received my BA degree in Elementary Education. I taught in the Holland Christian School system for a number of years before taking some time off to raise my children. I started as a paraprofessional at ACS around 1981.
God created children with unique abilities and gifts to service him in the world he has created. It is a privilege to be able to help children develop to their full potential in a setting of Christian education. It is also an honor to work alongside of gifted Christian educators and dedicated parents, as we all together guide children to find their place in God’s amazing creation. God is good!
