I am excited about the wonderful opportunity to teach your child this year! Teaching has been my passion ever since I was a kid playing school in the basement with my sisters. Before teaching second grade, I taught first grade and worked with children as a reading specialist. I’m a graduate of Hope College with a master’s degree from GVSU. My husband and I live in Holland and we have three wonderful kids. Katherine teaches middle school English in Chicago, Danny works as a civil engineer in Novi, and Will is a recent graduate of U of M. Some of my favorite activities include baking yummy things, running, and reading long books.
