The love of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, never ceases to amaze me. My prayer for my students echoes that of Paul in Ephesians 3:

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
– Ephesians 3:17-19

To God be the glory for all the growth that takes place at Ada Christian School!

I received my BA in Elementary Education and MA in Curriculum and Instruction from Calvin College. In the years following my graduation, God offered me many amazing opportunities including spending a year serving at a Christian ministry center in Southeastern England, long-term sub positions in 6th grade at Grandville Christian and 2nd grade at Zeeland Christian, and also the ability to serve in various capacities at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. I am so grateful to now be serving at Ada Christian School!

I fell in love with Ada Christian School soon after I first stepped inside the door as an eager five-year-old student. The teachers and staff at Ada Christian School have had an eternal impact on my life as they have helped me understand who my Heavenly Father is and who he has created me to be. Being a part of this amazing Christ-centered community once again is an enormous blessing!

When I am not at school, I might be found sipping tea, diving into a great book, playing softball or spending time with friends and family. Among other things, I enjoy traveling, writing, exploring God’s creation, perusing art galleries, and keeping in touch with friends all over the world.
