I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2004 with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in English. From there I taught kindergarten for nine years and then became a full time mom. I always stayed connected to the world of education and was fortunate to be able to work in the kindergarten classes of 2021-2022 at Forest School with their reading groups. From there, God made it clear for me that it was time for me to venture back in full time into the education world. I am so blessed to be working with first graders and watching God work through them in His own creation. My husband and I have one son, Maxwell, who attends Forest School. We live in Holland and absolutely LOVE where we live. We enjoy all seasons and activities in Michigan, but summer is our favorite!
