Mystery Teacher

Born in Colorado Springs, moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and moved here to Spring Lake at ten, this teacher grew up loving theatre and English. One interesting thing is that their family was supposed to move to Russia to be missionaries, before coming here to Spring Lake.

Their most memorable moment was when they were in productions, their favorite being Once Upon a Mattress. However after high school, this teacher ended up going to University of Michigan School of Music for undergrad and Grand Valley for teaching. Some of their favorite pastimes include reading, playing volleyball, and spending time with friends and family.

One thing this person could change about education would be to get rid of standardized tests and make schools focus more on mental health. On a more personal note, they have three kids and two kitties. Their favorite quote is this: "Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier." -Mother Teresa. Their favorite vacation spot is Playa del Carmen, and their favorite restaurant is any place with sushi. One of the most embarrassing moments as a teacher was when they almost got stung by a bee!

Last weeks Mystery Teacher was: Mrs. Boodt
