Suzanne Hemmeke

Hello!  My name is Sue Hemmeke, and I serve students in 8th -12th grade whose last name begins with A-De.  I love to work with students, helping them build upon their strengths and overcome their difficulties to realize their potential.  My undergraduate degree from Hope College is in learning disabilities, and  I have taught in both special and regular education classrooms.  My masters degree in counseling psychology was completed at Western Michigan University.

I am privileged to work with a great counseling team at HHS.  I job share with Bethany Nichols and am in the office all day on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.  Our entire counseling team collaborates in all areas, but I am the contact person for:

  • Upward Bound
  • Dual Enrollment
  • Junior Parent Meeting (with Karen Legg)
  • Senior Parent Meeting (with Karen Legg)
  • Coordination with VR Tech 


Like many of you, I am a parent.  I count it a huge blessing to be Mom to three daughters, who also attend Holland Public Schools, and the wife of my husband for 21 years.  I have always had a passion for helping others develop their skills and character, from teaching swimming lessons as a teen to camp counseling as a college student and now teaching and counseling as an adult.  I will be happy to assist you or your student in any way that I can.

Feel free to contact me by e-mail at shemmeke@hollandpublicschools.org or by phone at 494-2213.
