This is my ninth year at Pella Christian Grade School.  This is my fourth year as the "history department", and I have really been enjoying it!  I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelors degree in teaching and a specialization in Social Studies.  I met my husband, Jordan, at the Science Center of Iowa, where we both worked, before he headed back to Dordt to finish up his degree. He is currently working as the Head of Sales Development at Straavers Cellular here in Pella.  We bought our first house here in town and I have loved becoming a part of the Pella community. We have one daughter, named Norah, who was born in January 2015, and a little dog named Zaley.  When I am not walking our daughter and the dog, I love to read, garden in our yard, write, and sew.  God has blessed me with this position at PCGS and I am so thankful to be able to teach and learn in such a loving and welcoming Christian environment.  

In our history classroom, my DEEP HOPE is to invite us to be a part of God's redemptive story by learning from man's choices and actions through history.

"Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account." - Ecclesiastes 3:15
