Meet our Staff!
We are so blessed to have such an amazing and talented group of teachers here at Peace Lutheran School. They are truly servants at heart.
Principal: Mr. Todd Stoltz
Grades 7 & 8
The 2017 – 2018 school year is Mr. Stoltz’s 29th year teaching at Peace. He was born in Adrian, Michigan, moved to New Ulm, Minnesota, during his high school years, and was assigned to Green Lake in the summer of 1989. He currently teaches grades 7 & 8 while also serving as principal and athletic director. Mr. Stoltz coaches soccer at Peace and directs the Junior Choir.
Mr. Stoltz has been married to Janae, whom he met after she was assigned to be the 5th & 6th grade teacher at Peace, for 20 years. They have one son, Evan, who is in Kindergarten this year. In his spare time, Mr. Stoltz loves to read, watch sports (he is an avid Michigan Wolverines fan), cook, and mow the lawn with Evan.
Mrs. Shelley Lueck
Grades 5 & 6
Mrs. Lueck was born in Appleton, Wisconsin, many, many decades ago. Before she ended kindergarten she had lived in Little Chute, Marion, Clintonville, and Hortonville. She attended Lutheran schools starting in 3rd grade which was when she decided that she was going to be a teacher when she grew up. She graduated from Manitowoc Lutheran High School and Dr. Martin Luther College. She received her Master of Arts degree in education from Marian University.
She is in her 31st year of teaching. All of these years except one have been here at Peace Lutheran School. If you count student teaching, she has taught grades 2-8 at some point in her career. She has coached basketball, cheerleading, poms, softball, forensics, and even given a few band lessons. She has been involved in school musicals (and even written several for her students to perform), handchimes, and is the adult choir director.
Mrs. Lueck has been married to her husband, Mr. Lueck, for 32 years. They have four children: Jess, Louisa, Kaity, and Jake. They have four grandchildren and another scheduled to appear in January of 2018. She has a golden retriever named Sam.
Mrs. Lueck enjoys biking, hiking, kayaking, reading, and writing for children. A yearly camping trip is a family highlight. Her favorite Bible passage is Romans 8:28. Her favorite Christian song is Where I Belong. Her favorite book of all time is Little Women. She has kept all the pictures and notes that students have given her over the years and has a large manila envelope for each year she has taught. When she is eighty and has more time on her hands than she does right now, she plans to look through all of these and remember the wonderful students that God allowed to be part of her life.
Mrs. Terry Krueger
Grades 3 & 4
A native of Green Bay Mrs. Terry Krueger attended St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School. By third grade she knew she wanted to become a Lutheran school teacher. She lived with a family in Appleton while she attended Fox Valley Lutheran High School. Her education continued at Dr. Martin Luther College, New Ulm, MN. During her senior year at DMLC she did her student teaching in a gr. 1-4 classroom at St. John’s Lutheran, Lomira, and was an emergency teacher for gr. 1-8 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran, Spokane, Washington, for the last month of the school year. She graduated from DMLC in 1974 and was assigned to start a new school and teach gr. 1-8 at St. Paul’s Lutheran, Platteville, Wisconsin. After 5 years in Platteville, the Holy Spirit led her to accept the call to teach gr. 1-3 at St. John’s Lutheran, Princeton. Over time she “graduated” with some of her students, teaching various grades from first through fifth. When the school closed in 2010, she had taught for 36 years. After the school closed, she became a part-time aide for one year in Mrs. Lueck’s classroom. For 4 years she worked with Pastor Heiderich and the vicars as church secretary/office manager at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Princeton. In 2015 Mrs. Krueger accepted a one-year call to teach gr. 1-2 at Peace Lutheran in Green Lake. She retired at the end of the school year. The Lord had other plans for Mrs. Krueger because in 2017 she accepted another one-year call to Peace Lutheran, but this time it was for gr. 3-4.
In 1993 she married Sheldon Krueger and was no longer “Miss Vanderlin”. Sheldon took over the family dairy farm when his father passed away, but when he became a full-time rural mail carrier out of the Green Lake Post Office, he switched to beef cattle. Mr. Krueger is now living with Jesus in his eternal home while Mrs. Krueger still lives on the farm north of Green Lake. Their “children” were always their pet dogs. Lucky, a Golden retriever mix, is her faithful companion, and, of course, there are many barn cats and kittens. Mrs. Krueger has 1 older brother Jim, his wife Lois, and many nieces and nephews. Her parents and older brother and sister have also reached their heavenly home.
Born and raised in Green Bay in the ’60s, Mrs. Krueger is an avid Packer fan, shareholder, and has a lifetime membership to the Packer Hall of Fame. Due to her husband’s interest, she also became a supporter of the Badger basketball and football teams. Her other interests are traveling (reached the goal of all 50 states), reading, flower gardening, card playing, and attending country music concerts.
