As the band instructor for our elementary, middle and high school students at GCCS, there’s nothing I love more than helping students develop their passion for music. In addition to teaching band, I also teach middle school exploratories and private lessons. I am a 2009 graduate of Calvin College with a bachelor’s degree in Music Education. Previously, I taught for four years at Rockford Christian (Rockford, IL), and most recently at Ada Christian and Byron Center Christian schools in Grand Rapids. My husband, James, and I live on the west side of Grand Rapids with our two boys, Sam (age 4) and Bennett (age 2).
