Welcome Ms. Amy Kosmatka
In the fall of 2018, Amy Kosmatka will be entering her 21st full-time year teaching in the LCMS as an English teacher at Lutheran High North. Amy is a product of Lutheran schools, beginning at Grace Lutheran, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, then Milwaukee Lutheran, and earning her BA in Elementary and Secondary Education from Concordia College, River Forest. Her only degree outside of the Lutheran educational system would be her MA in Education Leadership from Western Michigan University. Her parents, Bruce and Judy Kosmatka, are life-long Lutheran educators; along with many other teachers, her parents taught her the value of Christian education as well as setting high standards for living.
Amy began her formal ministry with her first call to Lutheran High Northwest in 1989 as an English teacher. After taking some time off to be a full-time, stay-at-home mom, Amy entered back into the teaching ministry at three of our elementary schools, most recently at St. Peter, Macomb. The Lord has seen fit to bring Amy back into the secondary school, and she couldn’t be more excited about the new ministry opportunities presented to her there.
After all these years, Amy’s greatest joy is still teaching her students about our Lord and Savior throughout the school day, by word and deed, and seeing their personal faith grow, while also seeing them grow academically and emotionally. Learning is a life-long endeavor; learning to think and become the people God wants us to be is an important goal of education.
Amy is blessed with two grown children – Alex and Emelie, and a new son-in-law Steve, as well as the blessing of having her parents live nearby. In her free time she enjoys exercising, reading, watching the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers - and any sports for that matter, spending time outside, walking her dog Hans, and working around her house.
