I am a graduate of Grand Rapids Christian High School and Calvin College. I gradated from Calvin in December 2015 and received a degree in K-12 Special Education: Cognitive Impairment and K-8 Elementary Education. After graduating I served as a long-term substitute at Calvin Christian High School and am incredibly grateful to now be serving here in a permanent position!
Teaching special education has always been something I have been interested in. I grew up with five adopted uncles and aunts with varying cognitive, emotional, and physical impairments. I have grown up with them and watched them grow into incredible, confident adults with great talent and faith in Christ. As a teacher, I am so excited to watch my students’ confidence in themselves, their talents, and their faith grow during our time together!
My husband, Eric, and I met at Calvin College. Outside of teaching I enjoy traveling, reading, running, playing sports, and spending time with family and friends.
