Hobbies/Interests/Family life 

I was born into a Dutch immigrant family that settled in southern Alberta where I was raised by devout parents and lived in a huge family with many siblings.When I graduated from college, I took a teaching job in Knox Christian School in Bowmanville, Ontario where I met my wife, Joanne. I began my first principalship in 1977 in Stratford at the age of 25.  I have been the Principal in several other Ontario Christian schools – Peterborough Rhema Christian, Fruitland John Knox Memorial Christian, Cambridge Christian and now Milton Christian. I served as the Curriculum Coordinator of the Prairie Association of Christian Schools providing advice and assistance to 21 schools across the prairie provinces. I served as a Director and later as the Executive Director of the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools.

My current hobbies are birding, hiking and reading.  

What do you love about MCS?

I love the vitality that I sense in this school!  The teachers impress me with their dedication and sacrifice for the school and its students. I find the students to be friendly, curious and keen to learn.
