Joni Van Der Pol
Bridge the Gap
My deep hope is that we pursue the heart of God for the nations through building our Spanish language skills and cultural knowledge.
Joni Van Der Pol teaches Spanish 1, English As A Second Language and the support study hall for international students. She has served in education since 1988 and arrived PCHS in 2012. Her passion is to nurture students while connecting with them through the classroom, student travel abroad trips and extracurricular activities. Her side gig is being a pastor's wife at Bethel CRC in Oskaloosa, where her husband Doug serves. They are grateful that their children are PCHS alums, as well as having had the opportunity to host three daughters from Brazil, Japan and China.
