I am a Lynden Christian alum; I graduated from Dordt College in 1999 with a teaching certificate and endorsements in K-12 Physical Education and K-8 Health. I began my teaching career at Westminster Christian School in Miami, Florida. I followed that with a year in the Blaine School District. I have been teaching at LCS since 2002. I am also the head coach for the high school boys and girls’ soccer team.

My main reason for deciding to teach is my love for the kids. What better way can you enjoy them than by seeing them and shaping their minds for 180 days every year!

My wife and I attend the First Reformed Church in Lynden. We have two wonderful boys and two precious girls.
