After graduating from Calvin College in 2014 with a BA in secondary education (History and Socials Studies major and French minor), I taught one year at the West Michigan Aviation Academy in Grand Rapids.
I believe Christian education is essential to raise up the next leaders of the Kingdom of God. I hope to teach my students discernment, compassion, and awareness of their neighbors. As a history teacher, themes of justice, the forward movement of history and the hope for the second coming teach so much about how each of us is to live our lives here in this world as preparation for heaven.
One verse that I love is Acts 20:24 – “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.”
My husband, Joel, and I are both graduates of Calvin Christian High School. I love to run road races, read books, watch the Tigers, visit the zoo, and being outside whether it is camping or sledding.
