3rd Grade Teacher

I am so excited God has opened the door for me to teach 3rd grade at Holland Christian this year. My husband and I are both Holland Christian graduates. We have six children and our first grandbaby is due this fall. We enjoy biking, swimming, and spending time at the beach as a family.

This will be my fifth year back in the classroom after staying home with my children. In addition to my elementary education degree, I have a master’s in Autism Spectrum Disorders and a master’s in Early Childhood Education. It is my prayer that God will use me to help strengthen students’ relationships with him and to equip them with the skills they need to reach the world. I consider it a blessing to be joining the Rose Park staff and to be partnering with families.
