To act JUSTLY, To love KINDNESS, To walk HUMBLY With our God.
Micah 6: 8b
Great is thy faithfulness. God used “teaching 6th Grade Sunday School” to lead me into education. In the early 90’s and as a mother of my young family, I began my journey of becoming an educator by attending our local institutions: WCC and WWU becoming a dual-certificated K-12 Special Education and K-8 Elementary Education teacher. For 10 years, I was called to teach at the middle levels of 5th-8th Grade and eventually received a Master’s in Administration with a 4-12 Principal’s Certificate. I was selected as Lynden High School’s Assistant Principal and after serving in that capacity for 3 years, I recently concluded 11 years as the Principal of Bernice Vossbeck Elementary and had retired while remaining open to part time possibilities.
It has been a delight to join LCHS and the Lynden Christian School community serving as Co-Principal with Dr. Clay Libolt. My husband and I are blessed to have raised our four grown children in our wonderful community while fellowshipping and worshipping with our church family at Calvary Chapel Northwest. We are grateful to have added three more children (through marriage) and nine grandchildren to the fold. In addition to enjoying the enthusiasm and giftedness of LC’s young adults while being with them at school and supporting them in their co-curricular events as they further develop their world life view with Christ as the focal point, it is also wonderful to be more present with our kids’ and our grands’ at this stage of life. We love traveling to visit/watch them in their communities in southern California, Seattle, and around Whatcom County. In our spare time, we love landscaping, reading, golfing, hiking, other outdoorsy things, and traveling to other places we haven’t yet explored—our upcoming trip is to Kenya!
As we strive to Teach for Transformation (TfT) throughout the Lynden Christian School system, these are my foundational desires in bringing all glory to our heavenly Father:
Deep Hope: To Seek the Lord Wholeheartedly
Storyline: Love God, Love Others, Receive Love!
