I still remember the first day of basketball practice: standing outside, talking myself into entering the gym; convincing myself that I was not coming down with a fatal stomach virus; and mostly, trying not to show how completely inept I was feeling. I still have vivid memories of the insecurities I felt the evening of my very first basketball practice when I was in 5th grade here at Shoreline Christian. And truth be told, it wasn't too different the evening of my first basketball practice as a coach when our junior high girls' basketball season started this past January.

The summer before entering my junior year at SCS, I was given the opportunity to attend a short-term mission trip in Honduras, where for the first time in my life I was linguistically disadvantaged.

Being a bit wiser and definitely older, I wish I could go back in time to thank some of the people who made an impact on who I am today. One of the people who taught me about student well-being is Ralph Honderd. Coach Honderd was my track coach my senior year at Calvin College. My college track career to that point was pretty non-descript.

One morning during my quiet time, I was struck with a thought: “Ten years ago I never would have dreamed that my kids would be attending a Christian private school!” I am an educator myself, having taught K-12 special education and was a middle school counselor for three years. I’m all about having a great education, so twelve years ago we chose a well-regarded public elementary school for my son Isaac, to begin kindergarten at.
