Hello! My name is Beth Eckert. I am looking forward to serving with you in this ministry! I received my bachelor’s degree from UW Oshkosh. I taught PK in Wisconsin and in Illinois before moving to Florida where I taught kindergarten and first grade for 13 1/2 years. I moved back to Wisconsin two years ago so that I could work on renewing my Wisconsin and Florida teaching licenses. During that time, I felt that going back into public school wasn’t exactly the right thing for me. I watch the WELS Connection video about the Synod needing teachers and realized this was my next step. I completed the WELS Teaching Ministry Certification through New Ulm, MN this last year along with my teaching experience in grades 3-5.
Personally, I was born in Madison, WI. I have two older brothers, one niece and three nephews. It has been a blessing to be able to spend time with my family the last two years. You can catch me on the weekends watching and cheering for the Packers, Badgers, and Brewers or reading a good book if I have the time. I also enjoy taking nature pictures and traveling when I have the chance. I am looking forward to getting to know the congregation, school and community!
In Service to Christ, Beth
