Julie Raak

Physical Education Teacher

I graduated from Holland Christian in 1982, and continued my studies at Calvin College where I received a B.A. in elementary education, with a music major and a physical education minor. I began my teaching career at Muskegon Christian Schools where I taught 1st and 3rd grade while completing my Master’s program in elementary education at Western Michigan University. I have taught at Holland Christian since 1989, teaching 4th grade at Rose Park, K-5 PE at South Side and Pine Ridge, 11 years in the middle school, and now Rose Park. At HC I have also coached the JV basketball teams, varsity softball teams, as well as middle school basketball, volleyball, and softball teams.

God has gifted each one of us with many different talents, and I work to impress upon the students I meet each day whether in the gym, choir room, or the athletic fields that each one has many, and maybe very different gifts, and we are called to use them to bring glory and honor to God.
