"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
As the school principal, I am in the wonderful position of being able to teach and build up the next generation. It's truly a blessing to teach them about the Bible and watch their faith grow.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Immanuel Lutheran College in Eau Claire, WI. It was always clear to me that God called me to become a teacher. Seeing my students grow and improve brings me so much joy. I also bring unique enrichment opportunities to my students through music and literature.
I have been a part-time teacher here at St. Stephen Lutheran School, and the pastor of St. Stephen Lutheran Church since 2017. I teach the 6-8th grade religion classes, as well as morning Bible devotions each week with the entire school. Teaching at SSLS is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable aspects of my ministry as a pastor. It is a great blessing to be able to help our students grow in every aspect of their education and life
--especially in regard to their faith. My focus is to help each one of our students apply the wisdom and encouragement of God's Word, the Bible, to their everyday lives.
As the School Administrator, I wear many hats. My role goes beyond the day to day management of phone calls, email correspondences and sorting the mail.
On a weekly basis, I attend staff meetings, schedule field trips, collect permissions and volunteer forms.
On an on going basis, I manage Admissions and Marketing (including the creation and maintenance of this website). ;) What makes me truly a unique asset to our staff, is my background as a professional photographer/videographer! I continuously create content for school marketing initiatives as we strive to grow our school.
Two things that I have grown to love within my role, is photographing field trips and leading Praise and Worship.
