Educational Support Services Aide

In 2007, I graduated from Calvin College with a B.A. in special education and elementary education. I was hired as the ESS life skills job coach and continue working as a teacher assistant. I’ve enjoyed instructing a summer program for Ready For Life at Hope College. My husband, Jim, and I married in 2007. We have two sons, and enjoy welcoming international students into our family and getting to know different cultures. We love being involved at Ridge Point Community Church, and helping with the Unified Sports at HC. I love being a part of Holland Christian. I believe that God created each student in a very unique way. Each student has many abilities and gifts to share. My passion is to help students further their abilities and find an appreciation for God’s creation and their life.
