History

I graduated from Timothy Christian High School in 2006 and continued my education at Calvin College. I graduated from Calvin with a degree in Secondary Education with concentrations in English and Physical Education. Upon graduation, I returned to Chicago and taught sixth grade P.E. I also spent time aiding in the preschool and coaching Jr. High girl’s volleyball and basketball.

While at Calvin, I met my husband, an LC alumnus, and we were married in July of 2011. I moved to Washington and began working at Lynden Christian in the fall of 2011.

Teaching is a vocation that allows for me to nurture students so that they may be flourishing humans. I am gifted with the opportunity to provide the ability and the knowledge for each student to be a full participant in society and to then work to make a difference in God’s creation.
