After graduating from GVSU with a bachelors in Spanish with an emphasis in elementary education, I was humbled to receive a position in Rockford’s Spanish immersion program. I taught there for four years before God led me to Grandville Christian School and now Calvin Christian Middle School. I was an immersion student in elementary school who dreamt of being an immersion teacher one day, and God let it happen! I look forward to continuing my journey of learning to be a better teacher here at GCS.
My experience as an immersion student ignited a passion for the Spanish speaking world and I have spent time in various Latin American countries, although Guatemala is nearest to my heart. God even used some friends in Guatemala to introduce me to my now-husband!
When not teaching, I LOVE to read, be outside (especially in the woods), be creative, and cheer on my favorite baseball team, the New York Yankees
