Sadie (VanderLee) Smith

2nd Grade Teacher

I graduated from Holland Christian in 2016 and then went on to study early childhood and elementary education at Hope College, where I graduated from in 2020. My passion is found through teaching God’s children and developing relationships to provide many opportunities for young students. I feel very blessed to share my love for teaching, children, and outdoors at the Forest School! In addition to teaching and learning at Holland Christian, I love to spend every season outdoors with family and friends. Running the trails, camping in new spots, swimming at the lake, kayaking, and discovering new places around Michigan are some of my favorite things. I am looking forward to the adventures I will share with Forest School students and the Holland Christian community this school year!
