I have taught preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade. I am passionate about innovation in education and launched Nature-Based Kindergarten in Midland, MI before joining the Outdoor Discovery Network Team to start multiple nature-based preschools. I have always been compelled to serve young children and their families. I believe strongly that God has designed children as capable and whole people that should be honored for their individual gifts. Serving God at Holland Christian provides me with the opportunity to work on a team to design an educational experience that is centered with a relationship with God, His creation and each other. The ultimate learning experience!
