Welcome to first grade! This year will be a fantastic year filled with lots of learning, fun, and hard work. I am looking forward to getting to know your child through the course of the school year. We will be reading a lot of great books. I hope to stretch their math and numbers thinking. I also want to foster a love for learning and inspire them to do their best.

Professional and Educational Background

I graduated from Manson Community High School in Manson, Iowa. I received my B.A. degree from Northwestern College and began teaching 1st grade in DeMotte, Indiana. I came to Orange City Elementary School in 2001 with six years of teaching experience. I teach 1st grade here.

I'm married to Milt Sikkema. We have four children. Our oldest, Stephanie is married to Rob Ware and they live in Escondido, CA. They have two children, Levi, who is three and Declan, a one year old. Our second daughter is Laura and she is an ICU nurse in San Diego, Ca. Chris is our oldest son and lives in Omaha, NE. He is involved with several drumlines and teaches privately. Daniel, our youngest, is a Professional Ballroom Dance Instructor in an Arthur Murray studio in Chicago.

I love to read books, travel to see my kids, and play games. I try to get to CA often to see family and my grandsons!!
