About Us

Mr. Bern Vander Helm

Teaching at CVC for the past sixteen years has been a tremendous blessing and privilege.  I grew up in Western Michiigan, attended Calvin College, and began my teaching career in the Dominican Republic.  From there, I have taught in Washington State (where I met Tracy), in the Bay area, in Paraguay and now Visaliia.  God has blessed Tracy and I with three sons.  We love the Central Valley and being so close to the ocean and mountains.  I am so thankful for a faithful God who provides so much for us!

I have lived here in Visalia for eleven years now, but grew up in Southern California in the town of Artesia where I attended Vallley Christian High School. God then led me to Calvin College, where I earned a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. My early years of teaching took place in Southern California in a small inner city christian school, and then several years later I began teaching at Bellflower Christian where I taught kindergarten. I was able to stay home with my three children curing their early years but, after 10 years, God brought me into the classroom once again in 20012. I am grateful to be serving here at CVC.

Originally from Burlington, Washington, I grew up enjoying and exploring the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I attended Trinity Christian College near Chicago, IL, where I studied Elementary Education, Theology, and English. After graduating in 2015, God led me here to the Central Valley, where I am thrilled to begin a new adventure with fifth grade students.
