I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a B.A. in English and Secondary Education in December of 2013. I like to run, read, hang out in big cities, and bake/eat cupcakes. I enjoy sharing my passion for reading and writing with high school students, as well as helping them with college and career readiness.

Mr. Bickel is our high school science teacher. He comes to us by way of Seattle. He earned his undergraduate degree right here in town at Grace Bible College and his master’s degree from Antioch University in Seattle. Mr. B (as most students call him) enjoys teaching all the sciences and making a positive influence on young people.

     He is married to Vicki and they have three children, Sarah, Heidi, and David.
