Ron Van Der Pol, a member of First Christian Reformed Church, Oostburg, Wis., has been included in the 2006 edition of Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers.
Van Der Pol, an art and Bible teacher at Sheboygan County (Wis.) Christian High School, was nominated by current and past students who themselves have been nominated for Who’s Who Among America’s High School Students.
“I have always felt a personal calling to be a teacher,” Van Der Pol said. “God has led me into the classroom.” He said teaching gives him a unique opportunity to combine his faith with his practice. “It’s wonderful to teach art and Bible in the same day. They connect so well.”
