Mrs. Jeanie Vanderham

Reading Specialist

My name is Jeanie Vanderham, and I am the Reading Specialist at CCS. This is my 10th year at Canyonside Christian School. My professional experience and qualifications include having a Bachelors & Teaching degree from Azusa Pacific College. I have taught preschool for 4 years, remedial students for 18 years, and tutored students for over 40 years. I believe each child is a unique individual with various learning styles. My goal is to discover what those styles are and teach them so they are successful in their learning and can find joy in their journey!

I am married to Danny Vanderham and we have 5 adult children, 3 daughter-in-laws, 1 son-in-law, and 11 grandchildren. I enjoy reading, gardening, traveling, golfing, and spending time with family and friends!

God is the center of my life! I know He is always in control of my world and circumstances. He loves me unconditionally, guides me, and protects me. I trust Him totally each new day with a heart of gratitude as I strive to share His love with those He has placed in my life. My favorite quote is: “It shouldn’t matter how slowly a child learns as long as we are encouraging them not to stop.”
