Mr. Van Wyk

Welcome to third grade at Galtier Community School!

My name is Jon Van Wyk, and this is my first year teaching at Galtier. I completed my Bachelors degree in Recreation from Calvin College in 1999. I completed my Masters of Education degree in the spring of 2017 from College of Saint Scholastica.

I grew up in Holland, Michigan and enjoyed spending my summers swimming in Lake Michigan and playing sports with my friends. I currently live in Afton, Minnesota with my wife and three boys. We enjoy spending time outside, hiking, playing sports, and working in the garden. We have 11 chickens and hope to soon add beekeeping as a family hobby.

I have been working for Saint Paul Public School since 2000 and have a passion for the students of Saint Paul. I spent my first 16 years in the district working for Discovery Club and loved having a job that directly connected me to students and families. In 2014 I decided to follow a long standing dream of becoming a teacher and am so excited to be a classroom teacher in Saint Paul.
