7/8 Math, Lead Teacher
I consider it an honor to work with kingdom kids on a daily basis. The adolescents that fill the halls of Calvin Christian Middle School bring energy, openness and inspiration to each day. Teaching mathematics and Old Testament Bible offers me the unique opportunity to open up the consistency and patterns of God’s created order as well as the patterns and consistency in God’s dealings with His chosen people. My favorite verses come from one of the Old Testament minor prophet; Lamentations 3:21-26
After growing up in southwest Minnesota and completing my Bachelors in Mathematics for Secondary Education at Dordt College, my journey took me to Ontario, California and Highland Indiana before coming to Calvin Christian. Outside of the classroom I have enjoyed opportunities coaching athletes, mathletes and debaters. At CCMS I currently enjoy working with young leaders on Student Council and Chapel Challenge as well as leading the tech crew for Dessert Theater.
In addition to my teaching role, I am blessed to be a wife and mother. My husband, Brent, and I have four children, three daughters, Maggie, Josie and Charlotte and a son, JT. Our family is actively involved in the school community at AnchorPoint Christian School and in the church community at Seymour CRC. In addition to quality time with my family, I enjoy gardening, quilting, baking and reading.
