Mrs. Athena Findlay

Education Background:

I am currently finishing up my thesis for my Masters Degree in Literacy at Grand Valley State University

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for almost ten years in grades four, six, seven and eight.  I have enjoyed teaching at schools across the State of Michigan as I follow my husband, a medical officer in the US ARMY, but I am glad to finally call Grand Haven my home! 

Personal Biography:

I live in Grand Haven with my husband and 5 year old daughter Elliott and 2 year son Kieran. We have lots of adventures together and love to spend time outdoors, especially on Lake Michigan.  . In my spare time I love to read, write poetry, draw with oil pastels, hike and kayak.  

Integration of Faith in the Classroom:

Teaching at Grand Haven Christian School has been so wonderful, because I can openly share God’s love with my students and praise Him for all He does in their lives.
