Education Background: In 2017, I graduated from Dordt with my BA in Elementary Education, and in 2020, I received my Masters of Education in Teacher Leadership from Dordt University.
Professional Experience: The first four years of my teaching career I taught 5th grade at Sioux Falls Christian. Those four years, I taught math, language arts, and science. This will be my 5th year of teaching, and I'm so excited and blessed to be here at OCCS!
Family: I am originally from Edgerton, Minnesota and am the oldest of 4 biological siblings and three adopted siblings. This summer, I married Logan Schoonhoven, and gained another great family! Logan works at Hiemstra Lawn Care, and we enjoy spending time with our families and being outside!
Faith Statement: I feel so very blessed to be a part of the OCCS family this year. I have heard amazing things about this school as a whole, and cannot wait to be part of how God moves in the school this year! Christian Education played a huge role in my life, and being able to help provide that for families is such a blessing. I'm excited to get to know so many of you and your families!
