Mr. Kevin Charpentier
Principal
“St. John’s provides both our educators and students with important freedoms and opportunities in developing the whole child. Along with developing academic excellence, our fundamental objective remains helping students to grow in faith and a deeper understanding of God’s Word. As a result, we embrace the diverse and unique talents of each student, while providing intentional opportunities for spiritual, academic, physical, emotional and social growth.”
Mrs. Jill Hasseldahl
3 yr. Preschool Teacher
"I believe that Salvation comes from hearing the Gospel. All children should be able to hear God’s Word daily and know His love for them. My philosophy and role as a teacher is to teach the students everything in depth that I am able to do in an allotted time."
Mrs. Cheryl Witek
4 yr. Preschool & Kindergarten Teacher
"My passion is my students and what we accomplish each and every day. I continually strive to engage my students in learning experiences that promote a joy of discovery, love of learning, and the confidence to overcome challenges and obstacles. My personal goal is to provide young children an educational experience that is rich in opportunities to learn and explore their world in a non-threatening, age appropriate manner."
Mrs. Sandra Naegeli

"I strive to create a loving, safe environment for the young children in my class where they can grow academically and spiritually everyday. Each child is a unique individual and I strive to provide each one with a solid academic foundation grounded in Christ."
Mrs. Ashley Gasau

"I love the challenges that each day brings. My goal is to have a positive impact on the young lives that enter my classroom and to help them grow spiritually and academically. Each child is a unique Child of God and I strive to use various strategies to meet the needs of all learners."
Miss Kimberly Hoffmann
3rd Grade Teacher
“I believe that a successful teacher needs to be an instrument of the student. As such an instrument, the teacher should provide several things to the student. The teacher should provide an environment that is secure, nurturing and stimulating.”
Miss Janet Pesch
4th Grade Teacher
"The greatest gift I have as a Lutheran teacher is sharing my faith with the students in my class. Given that we live in a world that rejects Christian teaching, it is even more important that the Word of God is shared with the children at St. John’s Lutheran, so their faith may grow daily. "
Mrs. Tiffany van Sliedrecht
5th Grade Teacher
"My mission is to give each student the skills they need to overcome any challenge with which they will be confronted. I will treat each child’s individuality with respect. I will work with them daily to help them learn to believe in their God-given talents and abilities."
Mrs. Rachel Duchac
6th Grade Teacher
"My mission is to display God’s love to children by teaching them about all of the wonderful gifts we’ve been given by Him. I strive to teach students how to be respectful to one another, themselves, and most importantly to God."
Mr. Robin Adams
7th Grade Teacher
"Lutheran education is one of the most important gifts we can give our children. A Christ-centered approach to all subjects, especially the seemingly non religious ones, is important to the Christian upbringing of today’s youth."
Ms. Emily Cicerale
8th Grade Teacher
"In my classroom, faith is at the center of all that we do- it shapes how we interpret literature, how we communicate our ideas, and how we see the world. At the same time, the unique and individual needs of the students in my classroom are the focus of my teaching. I want each of my students to grow academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually when they are in my classroom. They are future critical thinkers, innovators, leaders- and I will do all that I can to prepare them for the next level of their education."
Mrs. Jaelle Charpentier
P.E. & Health Teacher
"My personal mission statement is to be a positive example of health and wellness to my students while teaching and guiding them to love and to respect themselves and each other as chosen children of God. Through physical education, I will encourage my students to discover their God-given talents and abilities while learning to improve their physical fitness and health."
