Professional and Educational Background
After graduating from MOC-Floyd Valley High School in 1993, I received my B.A. degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in reading, early childhood, and coaching from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. My first teaching job was K-12 Talented and Gifted Coordinator, Middle School Keyboarding teacher, and Varsity Volleyball coach in the Kingsley-Pierson School District. I then taught First Grade at Calvin Christian School in Minneapolis. After moving back to Orange City, I taught second grade in the Hospers Elementary School and coached 7th Grade Volleyball. I also taught First Grade in LeMars and Second Grade and Kindergarten here at Orange City Elementary.

I am married to Daron De Jong, who is a chiropractor at the De Jong Chiropractic Clinic in Orange City. We have a son, Aden, and a daughter, Ava. I am a member of First Reformed Church. I enjoy cooking, scrapbooking, shopping, and music.
