After graduating from Lynden Christian in 1991, I attended Calvin College and graduated with a Bachelor's of Education in 1995. My husband and I married in 1994 and after college graduation moved to Mount Vernon, WA. I taught at Everett Christian for two years and at Mount Vernon Christian for one year before our oldest daughter was born. For the next 13 years I was a stay-home mom for our four daughters and also became very involved in the GEMS ministry. We moved back to Lynden in 2005 and when our youngest daughter started Kindergarten in 2011, I was blessed with the opportunity to work as a Kindergarten aide. After 4 years as a Kindergarten aide, I now have the opportunity to teach once again, this time with my own class of Kindergarteners. I love Lynden Christian, and consider it a privilege to serve our Kindergarten students and to work with the amazing teachers with whom I have entrusted my own children's education.
