    What a blessing it is to share the good news about Jesus with his little lambs.

    I am so thankful to God for every opportunity he has given me that has led me to St. John’s, Lannon. In 2014 I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran College with my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Social Services. I am currently in the Transition to Teaching Program at WLC to receive my Early Childhood Certification and Master’s Degree. While at WLC, I also met my husband, Tony. We got married in October 2015 and welcomed our first child in November 2017.

    I began working with kids right after graduation and know the importance of learning at a young age and telling these children about their Savior. How wonderful it is to see their excitement to learn and eagerness to share their knowledge with others. What great examples young children can be for us as they demonstrate, without a doubt, the faith they have in their Savior. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can give these children the tools they need to strengthen their faith so that they carry this knowledge and trust in their Savior throughout the rest of their lifetime.

    I look forward to serving our Lord, and our families at St. John’s, Lannon every day.

    Children are so special to Jesus. I thank God that my parents knew that and taught me about Jesus as a little child. They also did everything they could to provide me with Christian education on every level. That education included a Christian elementary school, a Christian high school and a Christian college. The capstone of my education took place at Martin Luther College where I received a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and was equipped to share with others the truths about Jesus and his love.

    On my journey through life the Lord led me to meet and marry Andy Fix, the pastor at St. John’s. We have been blessed with three sons. Each one of them has been a blessing and an opportunity to share the love of Jesus.

    I love children and have rejoiced in every opportunity the Lord has given me to teach them. I look forward to serving at St. John’s and to share the love of Jesus that I have known all my life.

    Kindergarten is a special time in a child’s life!

    A day in the life of my kindergarteners is very active, productive – and fun! We use many hands-on activities and types of technology in all subject areas. In all of those subject areas we hear about the great love and power of our Savior Jesus.

    Whether the kindergarteners are growing spiritually, physically or academically, Jesus is at the center of all our days. Our main focus is God’s Word, reading and math, but we also spend part of our week in social studies, science, art, music, technology and phy. ed. activities.

    We tend to “celebrate” everything in our room . . . the 100th day of school, any holiday, hot days (squirt bottles), beautiful fall days (nature walks), camping in our pj’s, new fish and many more! We have several field trips or in-house activities planned throughout the year.

    Kindergarteners also interact with classroom “grandmothers” and buddies in other classes. We are busy little lambs of God! I thank Him every day for allowing me to “work” in His kingdom!

    My name is Susan Ott and I serve as the 1st grade teacher at St. John’s, direct Junior Choir, and assist with music at Faith Lutheran Church, our partner church. This is my fourth year serving here, but I have taught in our Lutheran schools for almost 20 years in different capacities. Although many things have changed with technology, teaching methods, and curriculums, the one thing that remains constant is God’s Word, taught in its truth and purity.

    Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I truly enjoy working with the students and watching them grow in their love for their Savior. I have the pleasure of teaching second grade. I teach in a very “hands on” way. I use many different types of manipulatives in the classroom. My students also use iPads, as well as Chrome books for cementing new concepts.

    It is a true blessing to teach and help the children in their daily walk with their Lord. There’s no better climate in which to learn than a caring environment with a wonderful curriculum centered around the love of Jesus.

    My name is Lauren Graumann and I serve as the 3rd and 4th grade teacher at St. John’s Lutheran School. This will be my first year at St. John’s after recently graduating from Wisconsin Lutheran College. I am very blessed to receive this call and to be able to use my God-given talents to serve His children.

    Ever since I was little, I knew my calling was to be a teacher! I am amazed at the wonderful gifts and talents the students have, and the learning that takes place in the classroom. Third and fourth grades are special years, as they delve into deeper thinking and make real life connections. I plan to use a hands-on approach to learning that keeps students excited and eager to learn!

    I look forward to getting to know each student and sharing God’s word each and every day!

    God has richly blessed me throughout my teaching career. Since my graduation from Dr. Martin Luther College (Martin Luther College), I have enjoyed the diversity of teaching students in grades 1-12 in both public and WELS schools. With this vast array of student population, I have witnessed God’s hand in shaping and molding young Christians, ready to serve Him in His kingdom.

    I am excited to be here at St. John’s. In every content area of the curriculum, I can freely and openly speak to these children about the one thing needful: Jesus Christ, our Savior from sin. In our daily living and discussions, we can remind each other of the importance of the scriptures, both law and gospel, what Christ has done for us, the sacraments, the importance of worshipping our Savior together, and of our “forever” in heaven with that Savior one day.

    As their ELA teacher (English Language Arts), my goal will be to foster a love of reading, so that they enjoy a rich heritage of the written text throughout their lifetime. Simultaneously, I will instruct them in the techniques of the writing process, and hopefully, take those reluctant writers to a new level of learning. All these literacy skills are critical as we learn and study God’s word. As their Social Studies teacher, my goal will be to teach geography, history, and culture of the many regions around the world. My students will discover God’s purpose in creating this amazing world in which we are blessed to be a part.

    Finally, I would ask for prayers as I move forward to help achieve the mission of St. John’s Lutheran School. Together we ask God to assist us in helping the children “GROW in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to  assist the church to GO and make disciples of all nations.

    I have always wanted to work with children. When it came time for choosing my career, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher.  I am very blessed to begin my 4th year teaching here at St. John's. 

    While teaching 5-8 Science, I plan to use hands on experiments so they learn while they are researching. They will not only be working independently, but also in groups to build team camaraderie, share hypothesis, and learn from each other.

    Aside from teaching Science I will be teaching Art, Music, Math and Religion. I will use my God given gifts to glorify God and train your children to be strong educated Christian children. I will also be using many of the resources the school has to offer.   Inclued are Chrome books and the Smart Board just to name a couple.

    I am eager to spend this school year getting to know the children. What a privilege it will be for me to watch them grow in their faith and show the gifts God has given them.

    As a teacher of 5th-8th grade students, I am amazed at the curiosity, energy, and enthusiasm that God has given each of them.  In my classroom, I strive to tap into that enthusiasm every day.  Specifically, as a teacher of math, I love showing the students the order and complexity found in our world and created by our God.  In class, my students and I are wrestling with math problems, discussing methods, analyzing mistakes, and much more.  I aim to prepare them to function as a productive Christian in high school and also wherever God may lead them in life.  Part of being productive is being able to solve problems, calculate answers, estimate, and recognize error.  All of these receive high  priority in my math classes.

    God has placed me exactly where He wants and needs me – here at St. John's in Lannon.  I'm excited to be a part of our faculty and staff, and I am thankful for the students and the families that I will be working with this year.  If you or someone you know would like to come and visit either my classroom or our school, I am confident you will find it to be a place where the students are learning, where the teachers are caring, and where Jesus is living.
