I became part of the GCS staff in 1996 after graduating from Calvin College and have been blessed to teach both third grade and second grade. I also have a Master’s degree in Gifted and Talented Education from GVSU. I am a native of the Grand Haven/Muskegon area, attend Ridgewood CRC in Jenison, and also have two daughters who are students at GCCS.
Over the years Jeremiah 29:11-13 has been an especially meaningful Bible passage for me in my life and teaching.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me, and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
As God has called me into each season of life he has shown me how solid and steadfast the truths in this passage really are. I strive each day to help my students learn how to seek God with all their hearts.
