Info
B.E., O.C.T., C.S.T.C. - Children are precious and it is an honour to join them in their journey of learning. I trust God will teach me a great deal through the students I teach. I have been teaching since October 2012, I have taught in numerous grades and in different capacities, these include grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. I have spent the majority of my time as a homeroom teacher to grades 5 and 6 students. Moving to grade 8 is thrilling for me and I am excited to share my passion for learning with the students I teach. Before 2012, I was a Youth Pastor in the Christian Reformed Church for 10 years. I have always had a passion for children and young people and I love to walk along with them in their faith. I am married to Lisa and we currently have three children who attend WCS everyday. I enjoy playing and watching baseball, as well as spending time with our family when we do various things together.

Principal
Info
CSTC, OCT, B.Ed., B.A., ECE.C I love to travel and have been in nine Canadian provinces, in each Great Lake, in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, in the North Sea, and in several other countries. I am constantly amazed at creation and see God's fingerprints everywhere. My favourite colour is blue and I am happy when I am near water. I have worked at many other jobs, but education is what I love. What a blessing it is to partner with parents and help children explore and discover who they are and their place in this world. I taught junior kindergarten for many years, then grades two, five, seven, and eight. I have taught art in most other grades. In my free time you can find me in my garden, going for walks, reading great books, or spending time with family.
