I have spent the past four years teaching at Hope Academy of West Michigan, a pre-school-12th grade charter school near Garfield Park in Grand Rapids. Though I will greatly miss the students and friends I made at Hope Academy, I look forward to being a part of the Grandville-Calvin Christian School family. I am teaching Spanish to grades 1-5 and World Cultures to the immersion classes at Grandville Christian Elementary. On Monday and Thursday I teach Spanish at Calvin Christian Middle School to all grades.
My wife, Kristin, teaches in an Early Childhood Special Education classroom at Ottawa Area Center. We have two beautiful daughters. Eva attends Grandville Christian in Preschool Spanish Immersion, and Leonora is 4 months old.
I am a graduate of Grand Rapids Christian, and a graduate of Calvin College with a degree in Secondary Spanish and English Ed. I received my k-12 endorsement for Spanish from Aquinas. I am currently a member at Madison Square CRC. In my free time, I enjoy playing music, building things, hiking, camping, playing or watching sports, and many other things. I have too many hobbies to keep up with.
