I am a Holland native and West Ottawa graduate who returned to Holland in 2022. I am thrilled to be teaching at Holland Christian because God's Word and my love for Christ can be at the center of my classroom and be the compass for all learning. I have spent 20+ years in the school music classroom. I have been a church worship director/leader, and taught private piano, voice, and flute lessons. I also write and record original music. I have my Bachelors in Music Education from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I am married to my husband, Cary, and I have two daughters and a son. Fun fact: My oldest daughter, Kirsten Ream, is the 4th grade Forest School teacher! I love to camp, boat, renovate homes, spend time with our family, travel, participate in Bible study and worship.
