Additional Experience: BA/Calvin College, Special Education & Elementary Education; summer camp counselor at Kid Rocks
I love seeing a student have a "lightbulb" moment, a moment where they understand a difficult concept, master a goal, make a new friend, or see their Creator in His creation. God is at the heart of West Side Christian School, which is why I love this community so much. He is in the way we practice inclusion and how we celebrate differences. He is in the way our children are taught to both love each other and to love learning. He is in the way the staff is willing to support each other and collaborate together, laughing all the while. I think every day should include dark chocolate and coffee, yellow flowers, a lot of laughter, and time set aside for Jesus.
