I’m excited to join the staff at MCS! I am a recent graduate of Calvin College with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. My subject focuses were Spanish and math. I studied abroad in Spain and Mexico during college and I also worked as an intern at a Young Life camp in Nicaragua in the summer of 2016. The camp was on a coffee plantation so I got to learn a bit about their growing and roasting process.
Growing up, I attended a small Christian school near Akron, OH that was very similar to MCS. My Spanish teacher there sparked my interest in learning the language and opened my eyes to the ways it can connect us to the Kingdom. I have always wanted to teach middle school aged students. During my time at Calvin I realized that I love 6th grade! I’m thrilled to be teaching students that are at such a formative point in their lives.
I love to explore new cities and places and really enjoy checking out Muskegon!
