For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
After graduating from Lynden Christian School in 1985, I attended Cascade Business College for one year and then moved to Seattle where I worked for several years before going to Dordt College. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Dordt College and a Masters Degree in Literacy from Western Washington University. I continue to take various classes which help me to understand and assist the various needs of each student.
I taught first grade at Evergreen Christian School for five years. In 1998, I began teaching part-time at LCS as the Reading Specialist. In 2004, I taught fourth grade on a part-time basis. In 2008, I began teaching first grade on a part-time basis. It has been very exciting and rewarding to be able to teach at LCS. My goal is to help each student know God personally. I challenge my students to make a difference each day and strive for nothing less than their very best in everything.
In 1998, my husband, Eric, and I were blessed with our oldest daughter, Paige. In 2001, the Lord blessed us with our son, Cory. Working part-time has allowed me to do the things I love; being a wife, a mom, and a teacher. I am very richly blessed in many ways and I am thankful to God for being a part of Lynden Christian School.
