“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
Mrs. Konni Lubbers
I am a 2002 graduate of Trinity Christian College where I majored in Elementary Education and completed a concentration in Psychology. I also received endorsements in Language Arts, Social Sciences, and General Science. After graduating I moved to Monroe, Washington where I spent two years teaching 4th grade. I then followed God’s leading and took a position teaching 4th grade at a Thai Christian school in Bangkok, Thailand. I came back home to west Michigan and started working for Holland Christian Schools in 2006. I spent time teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades before stepping back a bit and taking a position as an aide in the high school. I ended my time at Holland Christian by teaching 4 year old preschool. I’m so happy and excited to make Hudsonville Christian School my new home as part of the Kindergarten team.
My husband, Brad, and I live in the Hamilton area. Brad is a farmer and we live right on his family farm. We have twins who were born in 2012, Noelle and Thomas. We are members of East Saugatuck Christian Reformed Church. As a family we enjoy camping, playing games, and family movie nights.
I’ve always known I wanted to be a teacher. I feel like God has uniquely gifted me in this role. Teaching is a passion and just something that feels so right and comfortable to me because it’s part of God’s purpose for my life. I’ve learned over my years of classroom teaching that the most important thing I can do as a teacher is to build relationships with my students. It’s part of my job to make them feel that they are an accepted and loved part of our classroom community and God’s family. When students feel valued and secure they can do their best learning. Watching kids grow and learn is exciting and motivating for me. As part of a Christian school I have the privilege of teaching students reading and math, social studies and science in a way that integrates the faith that we share. It’s my goal for students to leave my classroom knowing more academically, but even more than that, knowing more about who they are as a child of God.
