What makes St. Martini Lutheran special?

What is your philosophy about education and its importance?
“We never “arrive” when it comes to learning. My goal is to foster lifelong learning in my staff and students by providing them many opportunities to meet their educational goals.”
What do you love about what you do?
“I love supporting students’ character development; our goal is to provide a safe place to practice skills and create habits aligned to God’s Word. It’s a beautiful thing when students truly practice forgiveness and experience reconciliation on this side of heaven.”
What is your hope for LUMIN scholars as they grow?
“My hope for LUMIN scholars is that they would fulfill the Great Commission by following Christ and making disciples.”
Favorite bible verse?
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer, and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” - Hebrews 12: 1-2
In your free time, what do you like to do?
“I love seeing live music with my dad. We go to concerts and music festivals often.”
What is your greatest accomplishment?
“Getting my Master’s in Administrative Leadership is something I am very proud of. I never pictured myself as a school leader, but I am humbled that the Lord has given me this opportunity.”
What’s your favorite book?
“The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey on Self Discovery by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile. This book has helped me to look at others with compassion and is rooted in Biblical principles.”
