Welcome to MCS! I am SO excited to be teaching the 5 day Kindergarten classes this year. I thoroughly enjoy teaching young children who are enthusiastic about life and learning. I love being able to share my love for the Lord and explore His creation with my students every day. My hope and prayer is that they would feel God’s love through me and want to live for Him, too.
I earned my B.A. in Elementary Education from Dordt College and my M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Grand Valley State University. In the past, I have taught in Bradenton, FL (Bradenton Christian School) and in Spring Lake, MI (West Michigan Academy of Arts & Academics). I am thankful to be at Muskegon Christian School, where I have taught since 2006.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband (Mr. Bonnema- the 5th grade teacher) and our 4 children. Our children attend MCS and WMCHS, where they are learning each day to love and serve the Lord.
