Deb Postma


I graduated from Calvin College in 1991 with a Bachelors in Mathematics and a minor in Biology. I earned my Masters in Education from Grand Valley State University in 2000. I taught in Salt Lake City, Utah for three years before returning to West Michigan. My husband Arden is a civil engineer with the City of Grand Rapids. We have been blessed with two great kids, Jillian and Isaac.They both graduated from South.  I enjoy running, biking, baking, and spending time with my family.

Faith Statement

Teaching at South is one of my favorite things to do. I love being around the students and getting the opportunity to be a part of their lives. Having a young adult with a significant physical disability makes many aspects of my life complicated. However, God has called our family to be faithful despite a difficult journey. It is my hope and prayer that others will see God’s provision and faithfulness in all of the challenges. Psalm 30:20-22 says “We wait in hope for the Lord;he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.”
