I came to Rehoboth Christian School in 2001. I was born in Orange City, Iowa but was raised in Pella, Iowa. I attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After graduation from Calvin, I taught elementary music for one year in the Grand Rapids Public School system while my wife finished college. My wife and I decided that after a year we wanted to move out of the midwest, so we began looking for jobs outside of the midwest. We were young and wanted adventure. It happened that Rehoboth was looking for a band director/elementary music teacher that year. We felt God’s call to come to Rehoboth and we have not regretted our decision to follow his call. What I love most about teaching at Rehoboth are the people. The students, parents, families, and Rehoboth staff are a unique group of people that are a blessing to be around. My wife and I are blessed to have four children that attend Rehoboth Christian School.
