I truly enjoy my time teaching here at Calvin Christian. Each day brings a new opportunity to mesh the two passions in my life: my zest for teaching/encouraging students, and the joy of spreading the redeeming message of Jesus Christ. My goal is to walk alongside my students throughout high school, focusing on strengths and teaching strategies that will foster independence and self-advocacy.
I received my Bachelor and Master degrees from Grand Valley State University in the area of Special Education with an endorsement in Learning Disabilities. Bridgeway Community Church is my home church and I enjoy teaching Sunday school every month to two and five-year-olds. My favorite pastimes include playing with my two children and reading. Additionally, I lead a local women’s book club group in Rockford. Each day I try to live out this verse from Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
