Genesis 1:1

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.”

Professional Biography

I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology. After briefly pursuing a career in geophysics, I felt God calling me to education. In 2014, I earned my Master of Arts degree in Secondary Education with certification in Earth/space science and physics from the University of Michigan. I am blessed to be teaching 7th grade science and Bible at Hudsonville Christian Middle School where I began my teaching career in 2014.

Personal Biography

I was born and raised in West Michigan and attended the Grand Rapids Christian Schools. I met my wife, Liz, while we were both working at D&W in Rockford where I charmed her with my talk of physics, and we were married in 2012. We live in Hudsonville with our sons, Rory and Reese and our dog. I am a huge fan of all sports, and I am thankful to have married someone who shares this passion, even if she is a Spartan fan. I look forward to spending time outdoors, and I especially enjoy looking at rocks and sharing stories about how they formed.

Philosophical Biography

I believe science is a subject best learned through experience. Through self-discovery, students learn not only essential knowledge but also how to conduct themselves as scientists. I also believe all students have the ability to develop ideas and participate in discussions. As a Christian scientist, I believe that science and faith are not separate entities. Rather, my faith in Christ has been strengthened as a result of studying science. I am excited to be teaching in a Christian school where I can integrate my faith with my instruction. In my classroom, students will experience science as a part of God’s creation, and they will learn that science should not be separate from God.
