Professional Biography

After receiving a teaching degree from Calvin College, I lived and taught school in Honduras for three years. Then I moved to Denver and taught 6th grade at Denver Christian for five years.  Later, in Texas, I taught 4th grade for two years (shared time) and in Chicago, I worked four years as a paraprofessional in an ESL program.  Now I help teach children in the inclusive program as a paraprofessional.

Personal Biography

I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Sussex, New Jersey.  I met my husband, Tom in Denver.  We have two grown children.  Natalie is a children’s librarian and her husband teaches science at the Potter’s House.  Ethan and his wife are both nurses at Spectrum Health. We are church members at Evergreen Ministries.  I enjoy traveling, reading, experimenting in the kitchen, and trying new things.

Philosophical Biography

We are each unique in how God created us.  I believe we deserve to be known well and understood by at least a few people.  Aside from teaching academics, children can be taught to accept and be accepting of others.  It’s one thing that sets a Christian school setting apart from another school experience.  I love my paraprofessional position at HCS in the inclusive program. My favorite thing is to teach classmates how to help others, give them the responsibility to care for others and to show them this is God’s calling to them.
