After living and teaching in various places around the world, including Nicaragua, Kate Poortenga felt God calling here away from her home in Michigan to work at Rehoboth. Kate graduated from Calvin College in 2003 and also received her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Calvin in 2011. Her varied teaching experiences, passion for working with upper elementary students, and desire to learn about new cultures, makes Kate a perfect fit for Rehoboth. Kate has enjoyed exploring God's beautiful creation here in the sunny Southwest.
