Michigan Virtual High School

Online Learning Center Mentor/Attendance Officer


I have been at Galesburg-Augusta High School since January of 1999.

I love my job & truly feel in my element working with high school students. Watching their eyes light up and their minds grasp the reality of that moment when they "get it", always gives me chills!

I am the Attendance Officer for G-A High School, reporting & recording any and all attendance for our students. Please contact me if you ever have a question or concern in regards to your students attendance records.

I also am the mentor for the Online Learning Center, which includes students working on E2020 (Edgenuity2020) for credit recovery throughout the school year or in summer school.  Michigan Virtual High School (MVHS) is also a part of our Online Learning Center, a great program that gives our students more options in learning, whether it be American Sign Language, French, German and Psychology, just to name a few. 

I also have the honor of planning the senior class trip to Florida every year. This trip began in 2003 and I never imagined that this would continue as long as it has, but it has become a big tradition for our seniors. I get just as excited as them every year when the day approaches for us to leave for the trip. Seeing the excitement of each of them, some of who are leaving the state of Michigan for the first time, let alone flying for the first time - it gets me every time!

My husband and I have been G-A community members for over 20 years, having raised both of our sons in the G-A School District.  We know the loyalty & pride our community represents and are blessed to be a part of it!

Please don't ever hesitate to contact me at groetsema@garams.org if you have questions on any of the above!  I would love to hear from you!
