Bryn Hovde will be joining the IMS staff this fall. He and his family have recently been living in Tiskilwa, Illinois and will soon be moving to Wellman. Bryn is our new art teacher and will also work in the Directed Studies department while Bonnie Smith takes a leave of absence. Bryn graduated from Goshen College in 1996 and has worked in the educational system since then.
An added bonus to the hire is that we are happy to also welcome Bryn’s daughter, Rachael to the 9th grade class. We look forward to having Bryn and Rachael join us at IMS.
Bryn comments, “If the kindness people have shown us so far is any indication of how our time in Iowa and at IMS will be, then we are in for a great experience . . . from Darvin Yoder paving the way, to Dwight Gingerich giving our family a grand tour of the great facilities, to many others giving us good advice for settling into a new community. My daughter Rachael, who will be a freshman, and I look forward to getting to know you all and engage what appears to be a vibrant community here at IMS. My son Eryk will be attending 6th grade at Mid-Prairie and my wife Rebecca will be helping to get our family settled in our new home in Wellman. See you soon!”
