I was hired at Grandville Christian School in 1980 after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Calvin College. My husband, Ken and I have three adult children who live with us in Byron Center. Currently I am the contact person for our Kenya Connection. I am also working in the kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms assisting during math and reading. My greatest joy is to teach children to talk with God. Helping children know God personally and presenting them with varied opportunities to talk with Him is what God has called me to do. At Grandville Christian I not only teach children who God is and about His world, but also how to approach His throne. Children meet with me for times of prayer, devotions and spiritual discipleship.
