Melissa Baas

Elementary School Teacher, Grade 1

Serving since 2004.

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Western Michigan University with minors in Early Childhood Studies and English.

As a graduate of the Kalamazoo Christian Schools, I am happy to be able to teach here. My faith and personal relationship with Christ are so much a part of who I am, so I am thrilled to be able to share that with the students I teach, the parents with whom I partner, and the staff with whom I work. I love that I can teach from a Christian worldview and help share the love of God with others. My husband, Jeff, is the executive pastor at Southern Heights Church. Our 3 daughters attend (graduated from) K-Christian. As parents, we love the partnership we have. We love seeing our girls challenged academically but also challenged in their spiritual walk. As a teacher, I try to live by the code I teach my students: Love God, Love Others, and Do Your Best. (Matthew 22:37-39, Colossians 3:23)
