First English Lutheran Church
Since 1992, I have been volunteering my time with the youth of First English Lutheran Church in Appleton WI. First with teens, then later with 1st-3rd grade Sunday school students. Every week is a joy and a challenge. It is through this experience that I grow in faith together with the kids.

Since fall 2010, I assist the instructors with kids classes ages 4-14. I have also assisted with promotional Karate demonstrations.
Each spring I find great pride and joy in helping sixth grade students understand global economics through the Junior Achievement program. Whether it is about currency, policies, or just studying the map to see where certain goods come from, they are always keen to learn and willing to share.
