Grand Haven Christian School



Kristin DeYoung

Educational Support Director

I completed a double major in Special Education and Elementary Education at Western Michigan University, with a minor in Integrated Creative Arts.  During my time there, I developed a deep love and passion for Special Education. I worked in Kalamazoo Public Schools, Bay Cliff Health Camp and Hope Network supporting children and adults with disabilities.  Since then, I have been teaching and volunteering in Germany, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and various parts of Michigan; traveling around 22 countries and 29 states.

I have taught Special Education, Bilingual intervention, Spanish Immersion and English Language Learners, and love working with and learning from kids in any area!  I am so grateful for the opportunity to use my experiences to serve and support teachers in my role through the WMCEC.

When I can find the time, I love reading, yoga, coffee, exploring new places with my family, and connecting with different cultures through travel and missions (both locally and globally). My husband Dave and I have  two girls, Kenya and Amara, who both attend Grand Haven Christian.
