Who's Hungry?

My Deep Hope is to hunger for God's Word, knowledge of his creation, and ways to serve in gratitude.

JOHN 6:35

hello, Parents!

What an exciting time of year! It is such a blessing to talk about Jesus and the wonderful gift of salvation God has given. I am excited to read about the biblical Christmas story with the kids this week and next.

In order to make our room a bit more festive, students can bring in wrapping paper tomorrow to decorate their desks. Small, non-fragile decorations can also be brought.

Please take note of the book report expectations below. This is due Thursday, December 8. Also, 5 AR points are required before Christmas break. Keep reading!

If you read this page with your child, the code word is GLASSES.

What an honor to be a teacher here at CVC! I consider it a privilege to share God's story with a classroom of kids each day. Every child is unique, fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. I take our mission very seriously: to equip and inspire hearts and minds to transform the world for Christ.

I am married to Dan, a large animal veterinarian. I graduated from Dordt University with a teaching degree in elementary education. I taught for 4 years at a Christian school in Iowa, then spent 13 years at home with our 5 children. This is my 5th year teaching at CVC. Life has brought many adventures; all of them pointing to God's faithfulness. We continue to "Raise a Hallelujah" for good health and for all our blessings.

God is good all the time. All the time He is good.
