I am very proud to be the kindergarten Spanish immersion teacher here at Fremont Christian School.
God led me on an amazing journey to Fremont. I'm originally from Maryland, raised by Michigander parents. I earned a degree in Spanish and ESL from Calvin College, where I had the opportunity to study in Mexico and Spain. After graduating, I worked for three years in community ministry at a multicultural Lutheran church in Baltimore, MD. One of the many hats I wore was that of after school garden club teacher, guiding a small group of elementary students in tending a vegetable patch and exploring nature.
From 2013-2015 I lived in Madrid, Spain, where I assistant-taught English in pre-k through first-grade classes at a bilingual school. My young students always impressed me with the curiosity and imagination they brought to their learning experience. I feel beyond blessed to share a language and culture that I love with my students at FCS.
My husband, Patrick, and I live in Muskegon with our dog Corbin. In our free time we enjoy music, the outdoors, and traveling (or at least dreaming about traveling).
