Elle Nieuwsma

English Teacher

I graduated from Calvin College in 2016 with my Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Secondary English Education and minoring in Communications. I finished my M.A. in English from GVSU. My husband, Dave, whom I met while working as a counselor at Camp Roger, teaches 6th grade at Rose Park, and we have two sons. We enjoy road trips, coffee, and walking our black lab, Luna. Outside of school, I play cello and lead worship. I also love stories and can spend hours lost in a good book, movie, or play.

In addition to intellect, it's my hope that students grow in compassion, courage, and creativity through my subject areas of Theatre and English. I am thankful for the opportunity to walk alongside students in a Christian environment as we glorify God, respond to His calling, and engage in the world.
