Education Support Assistant
After graduating from Calvin College with a BA in Elementary Education, I began teaching in third grade and later taught first and second grade. I have been blessed to provide Educational Support Services to students at GCS for 17 years. I am passionate about helping each child reach his/her potential and about helping each child to succeed.
My husband and I have two married daughters and a 15 year old son in heaven. We also have five wonderful grandchildren.
Each summer I tutor at GCS and raise and release monarch butterflies. I tag them before they begin their migration to Mexico. God’s creation is amazing and I enjoy sharing it with my students. I am an avid animal lover and I love, love, love to read. I work hard to foster a love for reading in my students also.
My favorite verse is from Rev. 21:4. “And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
