“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Mrs. Jessica Kamstra
I graduated from Calvin College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a major in Language Arts. I have taught 3rd grade, Kindergarten and 2nd grade in area schools. After having my 3rd child I became a stay at home mom and also helped with some office work at my husband’s business. I am so excited to get back in the classroom and help God’s children grow! I have loved being a part of this amazing HCS community as a parent and am so excited to see how God uses me in this new role as a preschool aide.
My husband, Brian, and I live in Byron Center along with our 3 kiddos – Mason (3rd grade), Oliver (1st grade) and Emerson (4-school) who attend HCS. My husband owns a landscape company which we started about 10 years ago. We are city people who turned out to live a country life with goats and chickens! I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to work at my kids’ school and also still be able to help out with my husband’s business.
How amazing it is that God blessed me with the opportunity to work with his littlest people! The world is still so new to them and they are learning and discovering new things every day. I am eager to help them grow in their faith, social and emotional skills, and academics! My prayer for them is that they learn to see God’s fingerprints in themselves and the world around them.
