Summary: AFter graduating from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, a began teaching in 1989. I announced a Call Acceptance to teach at Good Shepherd in 2006. I teach 5th-6th grade in the mornings and 7th-8th grade in the afternoons. I also serve as the school’s Athletic Director.
Favorite Passage: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Teaching philosophy: The goal of my teaching, and the center of my philosophy, is training future leaders in Christ’s church. I would like to accomplish this goal by helping students gain necessary skills needed to become life long learners. Once they learn these skills, then they can apply them to all areas of life, including their life of service in Christ’s church.
I went into teaching because I have always had an interest in helping others learn new and exciting things.
