Mary Dirksen

Director of the Academic Support Center- Junior High
M.A., Dordt College
Mary joined the Grace family in 2012 when her husband, Joe, accepted the role of junior high principal. Mary was appointed to the privileged position of launching the Academic Support Center (ASC) in grades 6-12. The ASC partners with parents, students, teachers, and the community for the academic success of all of our learners. Mary has served in four other junior high and high schools as an educator and counselor for over thirty years. She received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Dordt College in Iowa. Mary welcomes the opportunity to join with others in thinking outside of the box in order to embrace and celebrate the contribution of all of our students to the building up of the body of Christ here at Grace Community.
