What an honor it is to be a principal at a school as wonderful as Fremont Christian! I am in my sixth year as principal here at FCS, and taught here for six years prior to becoming principal. It is exciting to see the Lord work through the lives of students. The teachers and staff teach God's love through example and their vast knowledge of His world and experience shapes their teaching to be excellent. It is a blessing to be part of this team! Come check us out sometime to see what I'm talking about.

I am a Calvin College graduate in Elementary Education with Math and Science minors. I also received my Master's degree from Calvin College in Educational Leadership. I truly feel God has called me into this role as principal and teacher. It's amazing to to look back on life and see the people and experiences God puts on our path that guide us to where we currently are. 

I am beyond blessed to be married to Ruth. We have a beautiful daughter Allison and adorable twins James and Piper.  I love hiking, triathlons, hunting, marksmanship, boating, the beach, and spending time in God's creation.
