“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Mrs. Kris Grimm
I am a graduate of Calvin College, where I received a B.A. in Elementary Education. I completed 18 graduate credits from Grand Valley University to receive my Continuing Teaching Certificate. I began my teaching career in 1988 at Hudsonville Christian School. The first three years I taught full-time in second grade and then I taught part-time as a third grade teacher for 24 years. Presently I am an Educational Support Services paraprofessional.
My husband, Eric, and I have three children and three grand children. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, Bible studies, reading, walking/running, and traveling.
My goal as a Christian educator is to share my faith and hope in Jesus to the children that I work with. I want the students to experience Christ in every part of their day. As a teacher I enjoy the opportunities I have to challenge my students to think about their faith and what they believe. Through our discussions students will see that God is in control, and he calls us to serve him in all that we do. My prayer for each of my students is that they grow closer in their relationship to Jesus throughout the year. My favorite part of the day is when we are all together learning more about God in his Word and applying what he says to us in our lives. I enjoy sharing personal experiences where I have experienced Christ working in my life. I also treasure prayer time with my students as we bring our joys and concerns to the Lord knowing he will hear and answer our prayers. Being a Christian school teacher is such a blessing!
