Stephanie Vander Molen

Physical Education Teacher (K-7th grade) 

Theme for 2018-2019:  "Living God's Story" 

Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path."

Hello!  My name is Steph Vander Molen and I am thrilled to be teaching my fifth year at PCGS!  Previously in my career, I taught first grade and kindergarten for six years at Heritage Christian in North Liberty, Iowa. After moving to Pella in the summer of 2001, I have been a substitute teacher, stay at home mom and a Children's MInistry staff member at Third Church.  At PCGS, I have taught first grade for four years and I am currently teaching physical education.  

Troy and I have been married for 25 years. He is a physical therapist at Kinetic Edge.  We have three great kids—Kade (college freshman), Ty (9th grade) and Claire (8th grade).  Outside of school, I enjoy attending my kids’ activities, walking our dog (Zeke) and watching HGTV.    

Jesus is my first love and I am honored to be able to share His love and truth with my students at PCGS.  My hope and prayer is that each child at PCGS will know Jesus’ great love and experience all that God has to share with us.  It is a joy and humbling opportunity to serve families at Pella Christian Grade School.

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. “  Isaiah 40:31
