I have a wonderful career in the educational field and am blessed to be the Director of Polka Dot Garden Preschool here at the elementary campus. After graduating with a BA from Calvin College, I taught at Alger Park Preschool, then went on to teach Kindergarten at Moline Christian School and later was a preschool teacher and the director of an afterschool program in Hudsonville while my boys were young. Polka Dot Garden started out as a playgroup and became a preschool before it became a part of Grandville Christian School. Since then it has also incorporated both English & Spanish Immersion options for parents of preschoolers. I love early childhood education and I enjoy teaching as well as fulfilling my director role. One of my greatest joys each day is being able to share the love of Jesus with preschoolers and teaching them how precious they are to God! My desire is to help each child grow in their faith as they explore the wonders of God and his creation.
My husband Michael and I have three sons. Two have graduated from Grandville Calvin Christian School and are in college and the youngest is in middle school. My husband teaches Chemistry and is the Assistant Principal at Calvin Christian High School. In my free time I love gardening, baking, traveling & reading.
