Verse of the Day
7th & 8th Grade Teacher/Music Teacher

Sue Loontjer

I am a 1975 graduate of Concordia Teacher's College where I majored in education and physical science. While there I also met and married my husband, Gary. Our first teaching positions were in Detroit , MI. and, it was there that our three children were born. From there we moved to Seward, NE where I was a stay at home mom, day care provider, substitute teacher, and Head Start Family counselor. While in Seward I completed my master's degree in classroom education with an emphasis in middle school language arts. We then moved to Lincoln, NE where I taught middle school language arts for three years in a Catholic school and then for 7 years at Lincoln Lutheran Jr./Sr, High. During that time I continued graduate courses for a Reading Specialist's degree, but before I could take the last class we received a call and moved to St. Louis. In St. Louis my husband was the principal for CCLS, and I taught 7th grade homeroom and middle school language arts at Our Savior, Fenton. Gary then received and accepted a call to teach Physical Science at Mayor Lutheran High School. When we first arrived, I taught science and a variety of subjects at Our Saviors in Excelsior until declining enrollment cut school staff. I have been working part time in Mayer for the last three years helping to manage the Media Center and PSEO students. This will be my fifth year teaching music and special helps at Emanuel and I am looking forward to my role as part time teacher this year. Both my grandfather and father, as well as several uncles, have been Lutheran school educators and have instilled in me a great appreciation for our Lutheran School system. it is a pleasure to be able to serve our Lord by caring for His children and their families.
