FAITH STATEMENT
I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I desire to share my faith with all students, and pray that they may see Christ in me.  Teaching at a Christian school allows me to share my faith with the Holy Spirit's guidance. Faith is a journey. I want them to experience His leading in their spiritual, social, and academic paths, nurturing a heart that strives to serve others!
 
BIOGRAPHY
I grew up in Holland, MI and was a student of Holland Christian Schools.  Then I attended Dordt College for two years and graduated from Calvin College. While teaching in Phoenix, Arizona for almost 14 years, I took post-college courses in Mesa and at Arizona State University. My husband, three children, and I then moved back to Michigan, where I first taught at Hudsonville Christian and Allendale Christian. I have been a teacher at Jenison Christian Middle School for over 21 years.  I have a Bachelor of Science Degree with a concentration in Social Sciences.  I have taught in Christian Schools for over 35 years and thank God for that amazing opportunity to serve Him! 
 
THREE FUN FACTS:
  1. I love flowers and gardening.
  2. People confuse me with my twin sister all the time...and that is OK!
  3. I married a Canadian, now a very patriotic U.S. citizen, from British Columbia. Therefore, hockey is the sport of choice in our home.
