I started working at the school district in 2012 in the administration building. I grew up in Pella, graduated from Pella High, and went to college at Central. I’m married to Mike Bogaard and have four children – Travis, Brady, Nicki, and Makenna – all who attended Pella Schools. Our family also includes a son-in-law, Zach, daughter-in-law, Abi, and four grandsons, Cayson, Harrison, Charlie, and Arthur. In my spare time I enjoy reading, walking, and spending time with family.
