I was raised in the small town of Coloma, MI. I received an athletic scholarship to play Division II volleyball while attending Hillsdale College. Upon graduating from college I landed a teaching job right away and spent two years teaching kindergarten in Hillsdale, MI. After getting engaged to the love of my life, Mr. Krombeen, we knew we wanted to put roots down in the Grand Rapids area. I was thankful to find a teaching job and spent five years teaching second grade in the Grand Rapids area. For the past two years I have also been the Co-Director of Children’s Ministries at our church, Harbor Life. Our daughter, Madelyn, was born in June of 2017 and I was blessed to be able to take a year off of full time teaching to be home with her more. Although I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Madelyn, the year off of teaching made me realize just how much I missed it. We also will be welcoming a little boy into our family in January and we are so excited to meet him. This is one of my favorite verses, Proverbs 32:8 “ I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” I am so excited to join the amazing staff at Grandville Christian and combine my two passions, teaching and my faith, together here at this great school.
