I love teaching fifth grade at Pella Christian Grade School! I'm a graduate of PCGS, PCHS, and Dordt College.  After graduating from Dordt College in 2000 with an Elementary Education major and Physical Education minor, I taught 4th Grade at Oskaloosa Christian School for 2 years.  I was then a stay at home mom for 12 years before substitute teaching on a regular basis.  This is my second year teaching fifth grade at PCGS.

My husband Micah and I have been married 20 years.  Micah works at Pella Corporation in the Information Technology Department.  We have been blessed with four great kids - Erica (16), Luke (14), Chloe (10), and Ava (8).  In my free time I enjoy watching my children's activities, walking with friends, and spending time with my family.

It is a privilege to teach at Pella Christian and to partner with parents in challenging students for a life of service in God's Kingdom. Christian education is such a blessing, and I'm so thankful to be a part of it here at PCGS!
