My name is Julia Osterman joined the teaching staff at St. Mary’s in the fall of 2018. I have been a teacher for nearly 20 years at various Christian schools in Kalamazoo and West Michigan, moving and adding on part time positions as the needs in my family changed.
I am a graduate of Calvin College, majoring in Art Education.
Even though Grand Haven is home, her childhood home on a dairy farm in British Columbia, is never forgotten.
My interests include traveling, garage sales (what art teacher doesn’t?!), thrift store shopping/volunteering, kayaking, FBBC, and hanging out with good friends, my family and my 2 Dutch rabbits.
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and creativity with the students at St. Mary’s. I delight in the energy, effort and excitement that each one takes with them into my classroom.
My goal is that students do everything to the glory of their Creator, the Master Artist!
