Meet Our New Teacher

We are thankful to announce that Mrs. Karen Gotshall will be joining the teaching staff at Holland Adventist Academy for the 2019-2020 school year. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience in a variety of grades and classroom settings and will be using her talents for the Lord in Grades 6-8. We are blessed to have her join the HAA family. She notes:

“I am looking forward to joining the HAA teaching team next school year. I enjoyed interviewing for the Grades 6-8 teaching position and am anxious to meet my new students. Currently I teach science and social studies to Grades 7 and 8 at Ruth Murdoch Elementary School in Berrien Springs. I have been at RMES for the past five years. My husband recently retired from pastoring the Stevensville S.D.A. Church. We plan to move to the Holland area this summer. We have three grown children. As many of you know, Linda Reed is our daughter. My hobbies include reading, gardening, biking, water sports, piano, and travel. Please feel free to get in touch with me by texting or calling 423-598-8689.”

We are excited to announce the addition of Mrs. Jenny Kutzner to the Holland Adventist Academy teaching staff. She comes to us with three years of experience in the Adventist school system. Mrs. Kutzner enjoys creating hands-on, inquiry-based lessons that challenge her students to actively take leadership for their own learning. She also likes to incorporate collaborative sessions into the classroom, allowing students to learn new strategies and more diverse ways of thinking by working together. 

"There are so many aspects of teaching I enjoy!" Mrs. Kutzner says. "I love to learn, and my students teach me something new every day. I am a child at heart, so I love playing with my students and getting to connect with them on a personal level. I enjoy guiding my students and helping them understand the Word in order to live for Him, and it brings me such joy to instill in them a love for Jesus!"

We welcome Mrs. Kutzner and her husband to the Holland area and are blessed to have her join the Holland Adventist Academy family!
