Years at OCCS: This is my third year at OCCS, but my first year teaching full time (yay!).
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 9 years as well. This year I am teaching 5th-8th grade math.
Family: My husband, Matt, and I moved to the area this past summer following his call into minsitry as the pastor of Archer Reformed Church. This past year in March, we were blessed with our first child, Oliver.
