Mr. VanRemmen

I am so excited to introduce myself as your child’s fifth grade teacher. I am extremely honored to return to the Ralya Elementary family and be part of a community where every child is valued and provided opportunities for success. 

For the past 33 years, I have dedicated myself to serving the needs of students and families in the public schools in Okemos, East Lansing, Haslett, and Williamston. Most recently, I served as the Principal of Discovery Elementary in Williamston, a preK-2 building. However, I spent the prior 15 years teaching 5th grade, right here at Ralya. As your child’s teacher, I am committed to cultivating a joyful learning community for students and families where everyone feels safe and valued.

I am so thrilled to be back in Haslett. I am looking forward to a year full of making lasting memories, while achieving great growth and learning for our students!
