“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
Mrs. Katy Bosch
I was raised in Christian education and am so blessed for that foundation which has given me a faith-based pedagogy. I am originally from Hudsonville, MI and attended HCS myself when I was younger. I later attended Holland Christian Schools for middle school and high school. I prepared for teaching by attending Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL where I received my Bachelor of Arts certification in Elementary Education and Special Education. Upon graduation, I began teaching at HCS in the fall of 2009.
My husband Nate and I live in Holland and are members of Harderwyk Ministries in Holland. We have two precious sons, Parker (born fall of 2016) and Grant (born fall of 2018). In my free time I enjoy coaching and refereeing volleyball, biking, Dutch Dancing, shopping downtown Holland, snorkeling and being able to see God’s creation underwater. One of my many interests also involves music. It is not only something that I enjoy outside of the classroom, but it is also a big part of everyday in my classroom. I use music for a variety of things such as transitions, learning, quiet working times and fun!
I know that God has created everyone within His own image and as His faithful follower, I am delighted to embrace and celebrate God’s identity found in every student. The more and more that I learn about adaptations and modifications for learning; the more I am convinced that every student is capable of learning. It is my job as the teacher to create an atmosphere for my students to actively engage in their learning and become better motivated to develop in their God-given abilities. I believe that to serve others effectively, I must use my passion for teaching and learning to encourage and foster growth in my students daily. It is my hope and prayer that I may serve my students and that I establish a learning environment in which everyone shares opportunities and responsibilities for making decisions that affect the learning environment. Through my experiences, I have developed as a future educator with a commitment to guide students in forming connections between their academic subjects and God’s world around them. I am overwhelmed with thankfulness to be a part of the Hudsonville Christian community!
