Mrs. Barb Van Bockel » ANCHORED IN CHRIST!


Hello! And welcome to our third grade classroom! I am Barb Van Bockel and I am the third grade teacher here at SWC. I have always enjoyed working with kids and I have found teaching to be very fulfilling! I love that light bulb moment when a student suddenly understands a new concept. Kids bring so much laughter into my life! I enjoy being able to share with them my faith in God and that Jesus Christ is my Savior! It is a been a huge blessing to teach the kids of the kids I taught! 
I live with my husband, Glenn on a farm east of Holland, MN. Our three children are all married and they are all teachers! We enjoy going to the suburbs of the cities to visit them and we LOVE it when they come home!
This year our classroom theme is "Anchored in Christ." With all this craziness in the world today, it is reassuring to us that we have an anchor for our soul - a hope that is sure and steadfast. (Hebrews 6:19)

Psalm 119:9-12
     "How can a young person stay on 
         the path of purity?
      By living according to your word.
      I seek you with all my heart;
      do not let me stray from your commands.
     I have hidden your word in my heart
        that I may not sin against you.
    Praise be to you, LORD;
        Tach me your decrees."
