5th grade teacher

 

I am excited about the opportunity to teach at Oskaloosa Christian School.  Our family has been warmly welcomed by the Oskaloosa community and OSCI family.  This is my 28th year of teaching, all of it in Christian education. We have had stops in Illinois, South Dakota, Ohio, and now Iowa.  I have mostly been a teacher in a self-contained classroom at the 4th – 6th grade level.  My main goals for my students would be that they would grow in godly character and be prepared for the next challenge in their educational journey.  When I am not teaching or working on school related things, I enjoy reading, knitting, and family game night.  Don and I have two sons, Jeremiah, a sophomore at Northwestern College in Orange City, and Micah, a senior at Pella Christian.  We are looking forward to serving here, and pray that the Lord richly blesses our ministry and calling.
