I began my teaching career at Calvin Christian Elementary School and was blessed to be there for 22 years. I taught second and third grade before beginning a program in gifted education. I began teaching at GCS in 2010. My role is to challenge and support students with high academic ability. I received my BA from Calvin College and my MA from Western Michigan University. My husband teaches at Grand Rapids Christian Middle School. We have four children. The youngest two are students at GCCS.
My favorite Bible verse is Psalm 139: 4. “You hem me in-behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.”
