I earned a Bachelor's degree in Education and a Lutheran Teacher’s Diploma from Concordia University, Nebraska and recently completed my M.Ed with Concordia University, Portland. The 2017-2018 school year is my 13th year teaching at ILS.
I appreciate being able to build lasting relationships with the faculty and staff as we work to share the gospel with all of the Immanuel Church and School families. The school lunches are also tasty!
My favorite Bible verse is 'And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.' Colossians 3:17
I am married to the ILS PreKindergarten teacher, Robbi Eckman. We are blessed with a beautiful daughter Daphne and handsome son, Dylan! We have a dog named Eddy Jax. I enjoy visiting the occasional rummage and yard sale during the summer. My hobbies include playing golf, basketball, and fantasy football. Most of all, I love spending time with my family and traveling over the summer months.
