    Nancy Jo Creutz – Preschool

    Concordia Teacher’s College, Seward, NE (B.S.)
    Years of teaching – 30

    I enjoy setting up and managing my classroom as an invitation for my little learners to play, learn and grow. I enjoy being a caregiver and the opportunity to teach kindness and cooperation. I enjoy seeing the excitement the little ones have with new experiences and skills. But the best part of teaching at LMS is sharing Jesus and watching the little ones express their growing love for Jesus in prayer, worship, and actions.

    Karen Peterkoski – Kindergarten

    Cleveland State University (B.A.); Baldwin-Wallace College – Early Childhood Teacher Licensure Program
    Years of teaching: 9

    What I love most about teaching early childhood is seeing the tremendous growth the students make from the beginning of the year until the end. I love watching the children become more independent and learn how to problem solve. Every day brings new adventures and challenges, and I love that I am learning as much from my students as they are learning from me!

    Jillian Mlinarik –  1st Grade

    Kent State University (B.S.); Cleveland State University – Early Childhood Teacher Licensure Program
    Years of teaching: 3

    I love getting to know all of the students in my class and helping them to learn new things. Working here, I enjoy talking to students in every grade each day. One of the best things about teaching is seeing the difference I can make in each student’s life.

    Sarah Bakata –  2nd Grade

    Baldwin-Wallace College (B.S.)
    Years of teaching: 4

    I love teaching because each day and class is original! (I am never bored!) The students instill in me a desire to think differently. They rev up my energy, and I care about all of them. Teaching fosters a love of life-long learning; being considerate about others; and being the finest each individual can be.

    Melissa Vodicka – 3rd Grade

    Baldwin-Wallace College (B.S.) (M.A.Ed)
    Years of teaching: 13

    Teaching children is a blessing, and I feel that as an educator we must reflect on our teaching, examine our experiences, both past and present in the classroom, in order to understand them, learn from them and to become better educators for our students. It is with love in my heart that I teach children and want to help them succeed through learning and understanding where that knowledge can take them.

    Nicole Reeves – 4th Grade

    Malone University (B.S.)
    Years of teaching: 1st year teacher

    I love teaching because I can encourage, support, and love my students every day. I love helping my students; serving my students and learning from them. Watching a child grow and learn is one of the most rewarding things I can achieve in my life.

    Tammy Szyoka – 5th Grade

    Concordia University Wisconsin (B.S.) University of Wisconsin- La Crosse (M.S.Ed)
    Years of teaching: 27

    “Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it” (Prov 22:6). This is why I love teaching – to help kids grow n faith and love in God. My work is not just math, science, and reading – the foundation for life is Jesus Christ.

    Marina Palomino-Bach 6th/7th/8th Language Arts

    Kent State University (B.S.) University of Pennsylvania (M.Ed)
    Years of teaching-13

    I love teaching because it provides a chance to see young people find and grow into themselves. We get to explore different texts and topics together each and every day. What better way is there to love and appreciate the Lord than to curiously explore the incredible world he has created?

    email Marina Palomino-Bach


    Bill Moses 6th/7th/8th Math

    Cleveland State University (B.S.) Notre Dame College (M.Ed)
    Years of teaching-19

    Teaching is a privilege that allows me to share the love of God in our Savior Jesus. There are many opportunities in the classroom to build positive relationships when the Gospel can be shared with students and their families. Students bring energy that is contagious, especially in the middle school student that questions everything and at the same time is very passionate about things.

    Brittney Anderson 5th/6th/7th/8th History

    University of Alaska Anchorage (B.S.) University of Alaska Fairbanks (M.Ed)
    Years of teaching-1

    I love teaching because I get to connect with students while sharing my love of history with them. Teaching gives me the opportunity to not only teach them a certain subject, but life skills as well. I have a heart for middle school kids, and I love interacting with them.

    David Gaglione – 6th/7th/8th Science, Athletic Director

    The Ohio State University (B.S.); Cleveland State University Teaching Certificate in Middle School Math and Science
    Years of teaching: 15

    Teaching here at LMS has made me love teaching more than I ever thought possible. I work with the greatest collection of teachers and staff ever assembled. The thing I probably love the most is that the students, their families and all my colleagues are part of my family not just today but for the rest of my life.
