I am excited about the wonderful opportunity to teach your child this year! Teaching has been my passion ever since I was five years old playing school in the basement with my sisters. Before teaching second grade for Hudsonville Public Schools, I’ve taught first grade and third grade and I’ve also worked as a reading specialist. I’m a graduate of Hope College and I have my master’s degree from GVSU. My husband, Dave, is a teacher for Holland Public Schools, and we have three wonderful kids. Katherine teaches English in Chicago, Danny is a senior at Michigan Tech, and Will is a sophomore at U of M. Some of my favorite activities include baking yummy things, running, and reading long books.
