My education not only includes an undergraduate degree from Calvin College in History and Political Science, but also a Master’s Degree from Calvin in Social Studies. I was certified to teach in Michigan in 1982 and have been teaching since 1983 for 9 years at Byron Center Christian and since then at SCHS. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and attended Chicago Christian High School. I met my wife at Calvin College and have been married since 1980. We have 3 sons who have attended South Christian. My favorite hobbies are baseball, basketball and golf. My wife says I need more hobbies, so I read quite a bit.
