Lynette joined our Christ Lutheran School staff in 2020. She loves helping little children learn and grow and has spent her adult life working in early childhood. After graduating from Martin Luther College with a BS in elementary education, Lynette taught in kindergarten through third grade in Michigan before having her own children. When her family moved to Minnesota, she stayed at home and had a licensed family childcare for fourteen years. During this time, she also taught Sunday School and VBS at Christ Lutheran, and taught preschool music lessons in her home. From 2014-2016, Lynette was lead teacher in the Terrific Twos classroom at Salem Lutheran Church in Woodbury, MN. Then, from 2016-2020, Lynette taught in a toddler classroom at our church’s childcare, Cornerstone Early Learning Center, in Hugo, MN. Lynette is married to Chris, who teaches in the upper grades at CLS, and they have five sons. Lynette enjoys hiking, gardening, painting, reading, and playing with her four grandchildren.
