Grand Haven Christian School

6th-8th Bible

Christian Education has always been an important part of my life. It started with 9 years here at GHC (graduated in 2011). I then spent my high school years at WMCHS (graduated in 2015). From there, I went on to Calvin University where I received at BA in Special Education (K-12) as well as Elementary Education (K-8).

Getting to work with kids in a distinctly Christian setting is of utmost importance to me. So much of a person’s life foundation is laid in their middle/high school years. If I can be someone who helps ground students in Christ during these years, I feel as though I have not wasted the time God gave me to do work.

In the past, I have taught 5th grade at Grand Rapids Christian Middle School. After that I was the Inclusion Coordinator for Grand Rapids Christian Elementary; however I am thrilled to be back in a classroom. I spent 3 summers at Camp Geneva, 2 of them coordinating the Pines (7th-9th grade) Program. I’ve also coached middle school boys and girls basketball for many years.

Whether it is teaching, coaching, or working at summer camp, I love to invest in kids. I was married in the summer of 2021 at my favorite place, Camp Geneva. My wife and I enjoy camping, hiking, spending time with friends and family, and creating art together.

Deep Hope

My deep hope is that scripture brings us to an understanding of the vastness of the gospel, resulting in us desiring to live every moment for God’s glory.
