I have studied at Calvin College and University of Michigan. I did my graduate education in School Library Media at Grand Valley. My teaching background includes several years of elementary music, as well as high school and college Spanish. Since 1997, I have enjoyed my role in the Holland Christian elementary media centers at Pine Ridge, Rose Park, and South Side.
My husband and I are parents of five children. We have lived in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Metro Manila, the Philippines; Raymond, Minnesota; and since 1990, Holland, Michigan. We love this community!
God gave us the gift of language, and revealed Himself as the Word. I strive to promote delight in language and stimulate interest in reading–including selection, discrimination, and use of print and non-print materials.
