Principal: Jeff Boehlke Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I grew up in the Twin Cities. My wife, Michele, and I have three children; Meghan (MLHS alumni), Seth (grade 8), and Delaney (grade 4).
I Graduated from Concordia University in Chicago in 1992. I taught at three Lutheran schools: Pilgrim Lutheran in Santa Monica California, St. James Lutheran in Quincy Illinois and here at CCLS.
Since starting as the principal at St. Paul- St. Peter (now CCLS) in 1999, I have been a part of our building project, designing and building the school, creating our Strategic Plan and the hiring of many staff.
As a Christian leader, I am most proud of the positive nature of our school, which reflects the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I teach several classes this year: math 5, math 7, American history in grades 7-8, technology Grade 5 and I also close the day with the 5th & 6th graders every day. I usually lead about 7-10 chapels per year and enjoy sharing my faith with kids because that is why our Lutheran schools exist!
My favorite Bible Verse (right now since it changes an awful lot) is Romans 8:37-39 because it describes the tremendous love that God has for us as his children.
When I am not teaching or leading our school I enjoy spending time with my family, doing woodworking, hanging out with friends, watching the Twins or Vikings, exercising, camping, fishing and continuing to learn.
