Being back in a Christian School where I can share with my students God’s Awesome creation and redemptive plan through Christ is an answer to many years of prayer. I look forward to helping and showing my first graders the Way that offers them truth, life, purpose and hope everlasting. It is quite a privilege to be able to share this freely with my students at NorthPointe Christian.
Faith & Life
Mrs. VanHaitsma is a West Michigan native that graduated from Calvin College and attended various other Universities since her inclusive teaching career began in both Special and General education. Since she was young, she dreamed of being a ballerina, ice skater, actor, secretary, accountant and nurse but chose teaching because all the previous dreams could be fulfilled or acted out as a teacher with those she loved, children. Mrs. VanHaitsma loves helping and watching students find joy in learning and growing. She lives with Mr. VanHaitsma, Todd, and her two oldest children Kate and Adam and their many pets. Her youngest daughter, Anna, and her pet bunnies live in Kentwood while she attends college to be a nurse. Mrs. VanHaitsma loves to read or cross stitch but takes any opportunities with her husband or friends to get outdoors to tour, bike, hike or kayak.
