I graduated from Hope College with a B.A. in humanities. I am so thankful for my calling to teach young children, and I have had the privilege to teach 2nd graders, kindergarteners, and since 2006, 1st graders.
My husband, Bob, and I have two children, Jenna and Matthew, who have graduated from Holland Christian. Bob and I find great joy in traveling, taking long walks, biking, hiking, and spending time with our family.
It is a great joy and blessing for me to work and learn with young children. I especially love sharing the stories of God and His amazing love for us, His children. My prayer is that each child may experience the joy that Jesus brings into their life and that their sprouting seeds of faith will be well nourished in first grade.
