My name is Christina VanderVelde. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2007 with a degree in Integrated Science K-8. I also graduated from Cornerstone in 2012 with a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I taught Kindergarten and First Grade at Vista Charter Academy until I joined the West Godwin Elementary team to teach Kindergarten in 2017. I’m passionate about connecting my classroom with my students' families in order to create a team that ensures success. I live in Jenison with my husband and our three children. We love spending time together as a family!
