I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Calvin College. I have a Masters in Reading Instruction from Michigan State University. I taught for three years at Waupun Christian in Waupun, Wisconsin and ten years at Ada Christian in Ada, Michigan. I have been at Grandville Christian ever since, and I have just completed my 36th year of teaching all together! I am married to Mike and we live in Hudsonville. We have three children (1 daughter and 2 twin sons), and are blessed to have four grandchildren.
