What a privilege and blessing it is to teach at Ada Christian walking in prayerful steps with my students and their parents to provide the best education possible for the covenant children entrusted to me. One goal is to develop the best qualities in each unique child, so that he / she will mature into a sincere and faithful follower of Christ, using their talents and gifts for God's purposes, and for the furtherance of His kingdom. I strive to instill enthusiasm for learning about our Father's world. Each day I have a new opportunity to touch a child's life and soul!
I grew up in the Kalamazoo area where I attended K-12 in the Kalamazoo Christian schools. I attended Calvin College and WMU. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. I have taught in grades 1 - 6 for thirty plus years in Christian schools in the Chicago and Kalamazoo areas before coming to Ada Christian.
My husband, Bob and I have three wonderful daughters and one son-in-law who have graduated from Calvin College. We are members of LaGrave Christian Reformed Church. As a family we enjoy skiing, tennis, and running.
