My name is Lisa Luurtsema and I’ve been pleased to teach physical education classes at FA since 2013. My hometown is Escondido, CA where I attended Calvin Christian Schools. At Calvin College, I obtained a major in physical education and a minor in biology with my Bachelor of Arts in Education. I have taught fifth through eighth grade at South Olive Christian School and have done quite a bit of substitute teaching while raising five children with my husband Gary. I have also coached middle school volleyball and basketball. I also currently teach physical education for the home school connection at Holland Christian. Some of my interests include scrapbooking, reading, children's ministry, playing sports myself, and watching my kids play sports.
