I graduated from Calvin College in 2003 with a degree in Elementary Education. My concentrations are in Group Sciences and Spanish. I began teaching at Lynden Christian Middle School in 2003 and later returned to Western Washington to obtain a Masters degree in Science Education/Natural Sciences. As a seventh grade Science teacher my goal is to provide experiences and instruction that encourage students to better understand the world around us. Through the study of God’s creation we better understand how to better fulfill our responsibility to care for it. I love the energy and personality of 7th graders and am blessed to work with an amazing staff.

My husband and I worship at “The Table” in Bellingham, Washington and love to take advantage of the activities that the Pacific Northwest has to offer – camping, biking, and running are among our favorites. We have two boys that bring such joy and keep us on our toes.
