School Counselor, AP Psychology and Accounting Teacher
 
Deep Hope: 
Students will use their Biblical perspective to see the beauty and identify ways to change the brokenness in God's world.
Isaiah 55:8-9.  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
EDUCATION: 
MSE in School Counseling / 2007 / UW Oshkosh. BA in Business Education. Minor in Psychology / 1993 / Dordt University
 
YEARS AT CWC:
29
 
EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE: 
I received my Master's Degree in Education - School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Previously, I graduated from Dordt University with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education as well as a Minor in Psychology. I have enjoyed teaching at CWC for the past 29 years. I have enjoyed teaching in a variety of areas, such as general math, computers, business, accounting, and psychology courses. In the past, I have also coached JV and Varsity volleyball. I presently enjoy developing a Christian school counseling program at CWC to better serve the students and families at CWC!
 
FAMILY: 
I am married to Brad Schouten, who is an alumnus of CWC. We have been and continue to be blessed by watching the influence of CWC on our three children, Joshua, Jolie and Jenna, academically and most importantly in their personal walks with Christ. Although, they have been or are currently involved in many activities here at CWC, from choir, band, forensics, student council, B4 Bible study and athletics, they would say the most important thing at CWC is the relationships they have with teachers and, of course, their friends! We are very pleased that our two oldest children have also chosen to continue their post-secondary education at a Christian university to discover God's plan for his life. We are excited to see how God continues to show them who they are and how He plans to use them to do His work in His world!
 
What I Enjoy The Most! 
As a teacher, a highlight of my position at CWC is teaching the subject areas I thoroughly enjoyed in high school and seeing my students find connections outside of the classroom. However, my passion is the one-on-one interaction that I can experience with students outside of the classroom, such as in small groups and in my counseling role. My days have a lot of excitement and variety as I am able to work with students from Kindergarten all the way through to seniors in high school. I enjoy working with students as they work on discovering who God has created them to be, possible career options, and in their relationships with others.
 
As a parent, I enjoy the love the teachers have for not only the academic side of my children, but also the spiritual and emotional side. Hearing my kids talk about a teacher that takes time out of their busy schedule to talk to them reminds me why we have chosen CWC for our children. Another neat aspect that I have seen as a parent, is the cross-grade friendships that my children have formed. My kids have all had friends in their grades, as well as grades above and below. 
 
FAVORITE BIBLE PASSAGE: 
This was a great passage for me while going through school myself and remains a favorite to me as a mother, counselor and teacher: "Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103: 1-5
