This is my 5th year of working at Calvin Christian. I taught at Allendale Christian School for 35 years, spending several summers working with the Michigan Middle School Math Project and coaching the Mathcounts team. In addition to leading sectionals at MCTM and the Christian Educators Association convention, I coached a variety of sports at Allendale. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in secondary education from Calvin College with a mathematics major, followed by my Master’s Degree in secondary education from Western Michigan University.
In addition to teaching, I enjoy playing his baritone horn, singing, reading, and various sports activities.
My favorite verse and motivation in all I do is Colossians 3:23—”Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
