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, Teacher: Grades 7 & 8
MR. TODD STOLTZ currently teaches grades 7 & 8 while also serving as principal and athletic director. Mr. Stoltz coaches soccer at Peace and directs the Junior Choir. 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.
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.
Teacher: Grades 5 & 6
MRS. SHELLEY 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.
MISS STEPHANIE JOHNSON was born in Arizona, though she mainly grew up in Brooklyn Park, MN. As the daughter of two called workers, Greg Johnson and Dawn (Nollmeyer) Johnson, she has lived in four states and attended three elementary schools. She graduated from West Lutheran High School in 2012. Being a teacher had been her goal since 7th grade, so she attended Martin Luther College and received her first call in May 2018 to Peace Lutheran.
Outside of school, she enjoys music and fine arts. She learned to play the alto saxophone when she was in 4th grade, and she has a little experience with the piano and the guitar. She loves participating in choir as the “descant girl.”
MRS. JANAE STOLTZ returns to the Peace Lutheran School faculty after previously having served as 5th & 6th grade teacher out of college. Mrs. Stoltz came to us from Owosso, Michigan where she grew up with her two brothers and one sister. After graduating from Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, she was assigned to Peace. She married Todd in May of 1997 and their son, Evan, “joined the family” in June of 2012.
Mrs. Stoltz enjoys spending time with family, doing puzzles, and as crazy as it sounds, doing laundry. She also enjoys sports, having played basketball and softball throughout high school and college, and wants it made clear that she roots for the Michigan State Spartans, not that other team from Michigan that her husband roots for.
Mrs. Stoltz is excited to get back in the classroom and looks forward to the new challenge of working with 1st and 2nd graders.
Teacher: Grades 1 &2
MRS. DONNA KUENN has lived in Wisconsin all her life. She grew up in the Appleton area attending St. Peter’s, North Appleton and Mount Olive, Appleton with her four younger siblings in her grade school years. She attended Fox Valley Lutheran High School and continued on to Dr. Martin Luther College (now Martin Luther College) having dreamed of being a teacher as early as first grade. That dream was encouraged by many teachers and pastors along the way. This is her 34th year of teaching having served the Lord at St. John’s, Princeton for 27 years teaching various combinations of grades K-3, St. John’s, Montello for 4 years serving as the Early Childhood Director and teacher, and serving here at Peace as Kindergarten teacher since 2015.
Mrs. Kuenn currently lives in rural Montello and enjoys reading, baking, gardening and other outside activities like mowing lawn and fishing. She and her husband, Tom, have been married for 26 years. While they have no children of their own, they have many nieces, nephews, and godchildren as well as sharing in the lives of all the students and families that she has been blessed to teach. God is good!
