I grew up in the Zeeland area and I met my husband Bruce during my first assignment at Northern Michigan Christian in Mc Bain. In 1994 God moved us to the Zeeland area with work opportunities for my husband at Haworth. We have lived in this area since. I have three wonderful children. We are members of Haven Christian Reformed Church in Zeeland.
After graduation from Calvin my first teaching assignment was in Mc Bain Michigan. I taught first grade and kindergarten. I received my Continuing Teaching certificate from Central Michigan University.
After moving to Zeeland, I began working as a preschool aid at Zeeland Christian. Soon I began teaching preschool and moved through grade levels teaching kindergarten, first and second grade.
I believe that every child is created in God’s image to create and learn. I believe that having a child learn in an environment that is purposeful and saturated with recognizing God in and through all things is a priceless and irreplaceable. Christian education is an exciting way to meet and acknowledge an all powerful God filled with grace which motivates us to lives of service and thanks.
