Kelsey credits the fine example of her father, a Lutheran school teacher for 43 years, as the influence behind her initial interest in becoming a teacher in the Lutheran schools. It was at a summer Christian camp two years, however, where she felt the definite call of the Holy Spirit. Kelsey is a member of Divine Redeemer in Hartland and a sophomore at Concordia University Wisconsin, majoring in Secondary Education. At CUW, she is active in volleyball, chapel choir and a Bible study group. Kelsey looks forward to being able to help students grow in their knowledge and understanding of mathematics and God’s Word and, more importantly, in their relationship with Christ.
