Shirley Folkerts

Associate Adjunct - Business Administration

I came to Dordt in 1997 after ten years as a high school business teacher and two years as an assistant accountant in a manufacturing company. I am married and have two, young adult children. I am thankful that I get to use my God-given gifts at Dordt University. I am called to walk with people on their spiritual journeys and I get to do this as an adjunct instructor in the business and core program.
