Dear Kindergartners - My deep hope is for you to grow stronger in knowing God, loving His people, and learning about his world.
In 2008, I graduated from Dordt College with a degree in Elementary Education (major) and Special Education (minor). I spent 6 years teaching 4th grade at both Fremont Christian School and Grand Haven Christian School. I had the privilege of working as a reading interventionist for Allendale Public School before settling into Kindergarten at Allendale Christian School in 2016.
I have lived in the West Michigan area for most of my life. I was born and raised in Byron Center, MI, and spent 4 years in Iowa at Dordt College where I received my teaching degree. My husband, Bob, also went to Dordt, which is where we met. After finishing college, we both came home to West Michigan (Byron Center and Allendale) and soon started dating. The rest is history. We currently live just outside of Allendale in West Olive with our children, Rowan and Sullivan. My husband works for Request Foods and my daughter, Rowan attends Allendale Christian School.
