Encouraging and equipping students for life and for eternity!
WELCOME NEW STUDENT TEACHER
Hello! My name is Emily Witkowski, I am a student teacher here at Luther for the next 10 weeks. I am from Saint Joseph MI, a small resort beach town. Going to the beaches is one of my favorite activities to do in the summer. I am a senior at Martin Luther College studying Secondary Social Studies with a minor in coaching. On-campus I participate in soccer and basketball, I just finished my senior seasons which was a bitter-sweet moment. In my free time, I enjoy running ½ marathons, reading, and taking photos. I graduate this May and Lord willing receive a call. I am engaged to Noah Panzer who graduated last May from MLC with a degree in Elementary Education. We are going to get married on June 26th in my hometown. I am very excited about my time here at Luther and hope to meet many new faces. I look forward to building relationships with the staff and student body that I have heard so many good things about. God’s Blessings!
CALL UPDATES
Mrs. Kayla Eisenmann has received a Call to St. Croix Lutheran Academy in St. Paul, MN to teach American Literature and AP Language & Composition. Please keep Mrs. Eisenmann in your prayers as she considers where she can best serve her Lord.
Miss Kathy Georgson returned the Call she had to teach 6th grade and Spanish at Holy Cross Lutheran School in Madison. We thank God for leading her to stay at Luther.
