Mrs. Lindsy Kievit
Welcome to the AVID Program here at H.J. MacDonald Middle School. My name is Lindsy Kievit and I am so excited to be working with you this year. This year will be my 12th year of teaching, all of which have been right here at HJM! I am a proud WARCUB through and through!! I taught 6th grade Math and Science for 6 years and 8th grade Science for 5.5 years. In January of 2019 I transitioned to the AVID Elective position and I couldn't be happier with my new role here at HJM.
I am originally from Lake Orion, Michigan, a town just north of Detroit. While I love the mitten state with all of my heart, I have to say I most certainly do not miss the snow and cold weather. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2005 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology and graduated from Oakland University in 2009 with a Master’s Degree in Teaching. I am a huge Michigan State football fan! GO SPARTANS!!!
I have been married to my husband, Bobby, for 6 years, and we enjoy doing many things around town together. We have a daughter named Gracie who turns 2 in September this year; she is the center of our world and we are so blessed to have such a sweet baby girl! We are also expecting a little baby BOY in October of this year and cannot wait to meet him! We also have a crazy dog named Kenzie and a cat named Simba, so our house is quite full these days. I also enjoy reading and spending as much time at the beach and on the boat that I can. Teaching is my passion and I cannot wait to get to know all about you!
