Professor of Education
Phone: (712) 722-6277
I am in my sixth year of teaching in the Education Department here at Dordt College. I previously taught future teachers in the Education Department at Northwestern College in Orange City for 13 years. Prior to that I taught grades 3 and 4 at Inwood Christian and Orange City Christian schools for 12 years.
I am a 1980 graduate of Dordt and have attended many colleges and universities since then. I earned my Master of Education at the University of Sioux Falls and my Doctor of Education at the University of Northern Iowa. This year, I will be teaching 2 sections of EDUC 201, Curriculum and Instruction. I will also be teaching EDUC 331, the social studies methods course, and EDUC 206, Adolescent Literature. I serve as the recruiter for the Education Department and meet with most of the prospective students who visit campus.
I live in Orange City with my wife, Kim, who teaches preschool at Orange City Christian (Covenant Kids Preschool) and works part time at the Orange City Public Library.
