My deep hope for all my students is that they learn to create by taking inspiration from the One who created the heavens and the earth.
I attended West Side Christian School, Calvin Christian High School and later moved to Kalamazoo to attend Western Michigan University. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. This year marks my 22nd year teaching art in one form or another. Over the years I have taught elementary, middle school and college level students. I absolutely love my job and consider it a joy and privilege to teach at Allendale Christian School.
I was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I meet my husband, Jerry, when I was in high school and we married right after college. We have now been married 23 years and have 3 wonderful boys, ages 13, 14 and 17. When I am not at school teaching I enjoy going to the beach in the summer, skiing in the winter and watching my boys play the many sports they are involved in. We attend Calvary Church and are continually amazed at how God is moving in this wonderful church.
