6th Grade

The Lord your God is in your midst,
    a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

I attended Lynden Christian K-12 and graduated in 2008.  After high school, I attended Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL and graduated in 2012 with a double major in Elementary Education and Special Education, endorsed in Reading and Social Studies.

My first teaching job was at Lakeside Christian School in Clearwater, FL.  For 4 years I taught 3rd grade and then taught 1 year of 4th/5th grade Math and 5th grade Bible.

Now, my husband and I have moved back to Lynden and I am thrilled to be a part of the LC community again, now in the teacher role.  I am currently teaching 6th grade.  As a Christian school teacher, my goal is to help show students that they are valued and loved by God.  When I was a student, I appreciated all the support, love, and knowledge I was shown from my teachers and I desire to reciprocate that to my own students.  As a Christian school teacher, my job is to not only to pass on knowledge to students, but to show them knowledge from a Christian worldview.  My job is to also show them how to use that knowledge to glorify the Lord and be a transforming influence in the community and world.  I thank God each day for the opportunity I have to teach in a Christian environment and get to spend time with such special kids!

I have been married to my husband Dan since 2013.  He currently teaches Middle School & High School Band and Choir at Mount Vernon Christian School.  We are members at First Reformed Church.  When we’re not teaching, we enjoying playing games, trying new foods, and traveling!
