“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
Mrs. Sarah Bolt
I earned my BA in Special Education from Calvin College in 2005 with an endorsement in Cognitive Impairments. In 2011, I earned my Master’s in Learning Disabilities from Grand Valley State University. I began my teaching career at Ada Christian where I served as an inclusion specialist for 4 1/2 years. I took a few years off to spend time with my children and serve as a director of development for Starlight Ministries. In 2012, I was blessed to be called back to teaching in the inclusive program at HCMS.
My husband and I have three wonderful children. We enjoy living in the peace and quiet of the country. Our favorite family times include kayaking, hiking, gardening and the occasional family game night. My children and I love to be crafty and create new recipes in the kitchen.
I love to serve and to assist. One of the greatest joys for me is to help children discover and use their God-given talents and abilities. They need to feel confident as image-bearers of Christ and to achieve success in working for His kingdom. I am thrilled to be able to serve in a Christian school where I can nurture students’ faith and support them with prayer. My goal is to turn the bricks and mortar of my classroom into a safe haven where students are encouraged to seek God’s will for them and to act accordingly.
