The Gift Of Life
Hi, my name is Kiley and I am a senior from Sioux Center, Iowa. I plan on graduating this year with an Elementary Education degree with a middle school endorsement. I look forward to having my own classroom of students to watch them grow and develop to God's glory. Philippians 2:4 says, "not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of other." My hope and prayer is to bring the whole chapter of Philippians 2 into my classroom to live by as a whole.
|My name is Erin Cordell, and I am currently an Elementary Education Major, with plans to get an endorsement in Middle School Mathematics and Social Studies, at Dordt College. I was born in St. Paul, MN, and since then have lived in Nairobi, Kenya, and Lincoln, NE. I hope that one day I'll be able to go back to Kenya, maybe even teach at my former school Rosslyn Academy, but for now I'm content to stay here in the Midwest. I love reading, singing, playing piano, and writing. I also love seeing kids learn, I live for that moment when an idea finally sinks in, and you can see the light bulb above their head go off.|
My name is Nicole Scholten. I am a Junior at Dordt College majoring in elementary education with math and science middle school endorsements and a coaching endorsement in basketball and volleyball. I absolutely love working with youth! Experiences tutoring elementary students, working at summer camp this summer with all ages, and head coaching a middle school girl's basketball team have definitely reaffirmed my passion for instructing children, "in the way they should go." God has blessed me in so many ways that I could never thank him enough for in this lifetime. I was born and raised into a loving family in Inwood, IA. I have two amazing parents and four great younger siblings, Kyle, Kristin, Kayla, and Katie. (No, I have no idea why my name is the only one that doesn't start with a K.) I could not have asked for a better place to grow up in or a better place than Dordt College to learn and grow in my faith while also furthering my education.
I am Jake Van Otterloo. I am currently a junior at Dordt College. My major is Elementary Education with a Middle School emphasis. I am from Prinsburg Minnesota. In my spare time I like to hunt, watch baseball, and play sports. Baseball is one of my passions. Another one of my passions in life is education. I believe that education is very important for developing children into active and contributing members in God’s kingdom.
My name is Emily Groen, and I am currently a student at Dordt College pursuing my degree in Elementary Education. I am expecting to graduate in May of 2012 with an endorsement in Middle School Education. Within the Middle School endorsement, I will have specialization in the fields of English, Science, and Social Studies. I have a passion for guiding students through their learning process and providing them with a foundation to become lifelong learners. My interests include creative writing and literature studies. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing games, and traveling.
