I graduated from Holland Christian High School in the spring of 1998. From here I moved to Palos Heights, IL and attended Trinity Christian College College. I graduated with a major in English and a minor in Philosophy. I also hold a Master's of Education degree through Dordt College. Following graduation, I taught at Chicago Christian High School for three years, and came back to HC in 2005. It is humbling to be working at the place that had such a huge impact in shaping me. Hopefully God uses me each day to work in the lives of His children here.
My wife, Gretchen, and I were married in 2003 and have been blessed with three children, Tessa, Lleyton, and Gibson.
I am so blessed to be a teacher. It is a wonderful gift not only to be able to work with young kids, but also to have the opportunity to tell them about Christ on a daily basis.
