Jillian Jerele

Teacher, Kindergarten

A native of Grand Rapids, Mich., Jillian joined The Lower School Faculty in 2013. She is passionate about teaching that incorporates hands-on activities in the classroom. She believes learning should be rich with content and meaning -- and also creative and fun. Jillian particularly enjoys teaching CHC's youngest Lower School students, who benefit from her training in Elementary and Special Education from Taylor University, where she received a bachelor's degree.
When she isn't teaching, Jillian enjoys traveling with her husband and their daughter -- and spending time on "the lake" with family and friends. Her favorite Bible verse: 
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
