Years at OCCS: This is my fourth year at OCCS and my tenth year teaching.
Educational Background: I graduated from Hope College in Holland, MI with a degree in Mathematics- Elementary Education. I also received my Master's Degree in Educational Technology from Concordia University- River Forest.
Professional Experience: I taught at Timothy Christian Schools in Elmhurst, IL for 6 years in a 5th grade classroom. My main teaching responsibilities were Math and Bible. I have coached many middle school basketball and volleyball teams throughout the past years as well. This year I am teaching 5th-8th grade math.
Family: My husband, Matt, and I moved to the area in 2017 following his call into ministry as the pastor of Archer Reformed Church. We had our first child, Oliver, in March 2019.
