B.S. & M.A., Music Education, Pensacola Christian College
Mrs. Van Bergen grew up in Manitoba, Canada. As a child, she moved to Belize, Central America with her family to serve as short term missionaries. One night during this period, she accepted Christ’s salvation during an evening prayer time with her mom and little brother.
Mrs. V graduated from Pensacola Christian College with her Bachelor of Science in Education (Music) and then with her Master’s. She has had a wide variety of classroom experiences: teaching kindergarten for eleven years, teaching music and vocal classes through High School, teaching a 5th and 6th grade combined class, teaching 4th grade, and now teaching 5th grade at FCS. One of her passions is incorporating a love for music in the classroom, and singing often as a class. She also enjoys reading aloud to her class, and tries often to incorporate excellent children’s books.
Mrs. Van Bergen is married and loves being a mom to Gideon, Jackson, and Madeline, all of whom are enrolled at FCS. In her spare time she enjoys playing the piano, reading, and traveling as a family.
FCS is committed to making an excellent, Christian education accessible to the average family. Tuition only covers a portion of the cost of providing that education. Please consider making a tax-deductable donation to ensure the next generation is prepared, as God directs, to live and lead. Thank you!
