I’m 100% CUC and proud to serve as the ECEC director. I feel like I have come home. After serving in many Lutheran schools, it feels good to give back to the place that gave my start in Lutheran education. Dr. Morgenthaler was my professor, graduate advisor and mentor. I am happy to continue the 45-year tradition of Christ-centered, child-focused, quality education for the ECEC children of the, and I love working with the college students who will take what they learn with us into the world.
