Bill Zuelsdorff, Principal

Mr. Zuelsdorff enjoys serving in a Lutheran school setting. He believes that God has charged His people with the task of raising up their children with knowledge of their loving Creator. Lutheran schools not only supply families with the core subjects of math, science, reading, etc., but they also infuse this with the knowledge of a loving Heavenly Father. Teaching at a Lutheran school truly does allow one to share the love of Jesus with the families of their community.

Mr. Zuelsdorff enjoys interacting with students in and out of the classroom. He enjoys being able to instruct students in the classroom setting, but also enjoys being able to interact with students in informal settings as well.

Some things Mr. Zuelsdorff enjoys doing outside the classroom are officiating baseball, softball, and football. He enjoys watching his three sons play sports. And, he enjoys doing Civil War reenacting during the summer months.

Mr. Zuelsdorff grew up in Merrill, Wisconsin. He received his teaching degree at Concordia-St. Paul, MN, later receiving a Masters Degree in Education from Lakeland College. Mr. Zuelsdorff is married to Carmen. They have three sons, Bretten, Rhein, and Kiel.

One of Mr. Zuelsdorff’s favorite Bible passages comes from Isaiah 40:31...but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Mrs. Ramona Schultz has taught in Lutheran elementary schools for over 25 years. Early in her career, she taught middle school math and science. After a few years she made the transition to preschool aged children. That is where she found her true calling and love of teaching. Teaching young children about Jesus and His unfathomable love is a pleasure and privilege that is unmatched in the teaching profession. A true joy to her is seeing those children eager to learn about Jesus, and then going home and sharing that with their parents.

Mrs. Schultz strives to hold each child as a precious gift of Jesus. Knowing that 4K is the very first school experience that many children have, she works to make it a smooth transition for the child as well as the parents. Parents receive a weekly newsletter to keep them informed of what is going on in the classroom.

Mrs. Schultz has a classroom that is filled with many activities that are geared to teach the children about working together, getting along with each other and learning about God’s world using hands on techniques. She teaches by using the theme approach. Along with the theme of the week, there are activities that are literacy, math, art, and science related.

Mrs. Schultz attended Concordia College in St. Paul earning her elementary education degree with a concentration in math. She holds a master’s degree in education from Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan. She and her husband, Mark, Trinity’s Minister of Music, have 2 beautiful daughters and 1 amazing son-in-law.

When she isn’t teaching or planning school activities, she enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, working in her yard, reading, and doing Sudoku puzzles.

Her prayer is the words of Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me , O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

"Train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it." I want my students to know the love of Jesus as their Lord and Savior and to share that love with others. I want them to know that know matter what we do, or how far away from him we may go, He will always be with us, loving and forgiving us. Waiting for us. That's why I've chosen to work at a parochial school.

Shannon Grosnick,Teacher - Grade 5 & 6 (2016-17)

It is Mrs. Grosnick’s privilege to help students identify their God given talents and spiritual gifts. She encourages her students in a way that helps build up those strengths in the classroom and toward one another in preparation for the world ahead. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
