I attended Kalamazoo Christian Schools and graduated from Calvin College with a degree in Education (K-8) and an endorsement in Special Ed (Cognitive Impairment K-12). I taught 3rd grade in California, then taught in 3rd grade and special ed. classrooms in Madison (WI) Public Schools. I homeschooled my boys for 6 years and then started working at Grandville Christian Elementary. I have worked in the pre-school and as Educational Support Staff since 2006.
I love working with students with unique gifts and helping them to find their place in this world and also love seeing the faith and acceptance of their Calvin Christian friends and teachers as they learn to do this.
I am married to Dan Kroeze, a pastor and professor at Kuyper College. We have 3 sons & a daughter-in-law who have all graduated from Calvin Christian, and a daughter who is a Grandville Calvin Christian School student. In my spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, and knitting.
My favorite verse is Ephesians 3:14-21.
“…And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and highand deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God…”
