Third Grade: Meet Christine Eilers
Christine Eilers, Teacher email
I grew up in Seattle, WA and attended Lutheran school 1st
grade. After high school I returned to Lutheran education at Concordia College in Portland, Oregon. Since it was only a 2-year school at the time, I moved on to Concordia St. Paul in Minnesota. After graduating with a degree in Elementary Education, I decided snow and Ice were not for me and took my first Call to Faith Lutheran in Tucson, AZ. After teaching two years each of Kdg., 2nd
, and 5th
grades, I decided to follow my sisters and their Navy husbands to Honolulu, Hawaii. I spent many wonderful years teaching 4th
grade at Our Savior Lutheran School in the Pearl Harbor area. I also enjoyed directing the school choir. Through my work in music around town I was offered the position of Education Coordinator/Assistant to the President of the Honolulu Symphony. What a joy it was to hear beautiful music all the time! However, after 6 years I missed the one-on-one with students, so returned to teaching as the 2nd
grade teacher at Our Redeemer Lutheran School in Honolulu. The Lord then called me back to the mainland to become the 2nd
and then 3rd
grade teacher at Trinity Lutheran School in Houston. Unfortunately the school closed and I prayed that the Lord would bless me with another teaching position in Texas. He did! And I am now looking forward with great anticipation to a great year at Our Redeemer!
