YEARS AT CWC:
I graduated from Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA, in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education - Biology and Chemistry. I am currently endorsed to teach 5 -12 Biology, 5 -12 Chemistry, and I also have a coaching endorsement.
I started my career as a high school teacher working at Washington Christian Academy in Olney, MD, teaching several science courses including biology, chemistry, environmental science, human anatomy and physiology, and earth science. While there, I coached middle school volleyball, varsity girl's basketball, and varsity cheerleading. I also sponsored the outdoors club.
I enjoy being in the outdoors. I love to go camping, kayaking, and hiking. I have a goal to visit all of the United States National Parks in my life (so far I have 22/62). I also enjoy painting, listening to podcasts, refurbishing furniture, and spending quality time with my friends and family.
WHY I LOVE WORKING AT CWC:
I love being able to get to know the students on a personal level and getting to not only share my interest in science, but getting to share that it was all established by our amazing Creator. I love it when my students look out the windows of my classroom and no longer see just trees and grass, but see God’s handiwork and His provisions for us.
FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE:
Psalms: 116:7 says, “Be at rest once more, oh my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.” I really like this verse because it reminds me of who is really in control when I am fretting about the future, things I cannot control, or the basic issues that arise in life. Not only is God in control, but He has also taken care of me in the past, and why would that change now?
