Sarah Fennema

Bilingual Educational Support Specialist

I am so blessed to be part of the GCCS staff!  I graduated from Calvin College in 2012 with a Bachelor of the Arts in Education with endorsements in Spanish and mathematics.  At Calvin, I was given the wonderful opportunity to live and study abroad in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  I have also visited Guatemala and Nicaragua.  In addition, I work with adults in Grand Rapids from Latin American countries, helping them learn English.

Teaching the children here at GCS is huge blessing.  It is such a privilege to see the love flowing in this building every day: love for God and love for each other.  I am excited to see children grow in their faith while learning about the world around them during their time here.  It is my prayer that my actions demonstrate God’s love daily to my students as they grow and learn.

When I am not teaching, I love to read.  I also play piano in my church and love worshiping God through music.  Lastly, I treasure the time I am able to spend with friends and family.

My favorite Bible verse: Philippians 4:13  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
