Seeing young people discover their gifts and talents over the course of 4 years, and helping students see the logic and creativity present in mathematics is the amazing opportunity that I am privileged to experience. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree from Calvin College, I received my Master’s Degree from Dordt College.
My wife, Andrea, and I have three young children that keep us busy. In my spare time, I enjoy running, reading, working on yard projects, and watching Survivor. Previously I coached basketball and tennis.
A favorite verse is Philippians 4: 4-7. 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
