When one thinks of the Timothy Lutheran School Ministry, it is impossible to discuss its history or purpose without acknowledging this week’s Timothy Hero, Angie Mundt. Mrs. Mundt, whose career as a Lutheran School educator spans 22 years, devotes her career and calling to teaching children in the spirit of Christ. As school administrator, I rely on Mrs. Mundt to lead committees, organize information, share her creativity, and actively problem solve, all of which she demonstrates through the Lutheran School Accreditation Process among other initiatives involving TLS and Lutheran education in general. As a life-long learner, Mrs. Mundt is currently enrolled at Concordia University to complete her administrative certificate. She is one of those teachers that not only understand student needs but also sees the big picture in understanding the school’s needs.

In a world where immediate gratification is expected, Mrs. Mundt continually demonstrates the importance of hard work and devotion that lead to great outcomes benefitting her colleagues and students. Her fellow teachers say this: “Angie is always willing to help. She’s a great team player that strives not only to do her best, but to help all of us be our best.” “Angie is a hardworking teacher who is very devoted to her students, their families, our school, and to Timothy Lutheran Church.” “As a master teacher, . . . she is always prepared, knows her curriculum inside and out, . . . and loves her Lord and her students with such heart and passion. Angie is artistic, imaginative and has these wonderful ideas that she always brings to life. She is caring, patient, knowledgeable, dedicated, compassionate and inspirational. Angie connects with her students and always strives to figure out what makes them tick and learn. She really does so much more than merely instruct. She is touching their lives for Jesus, and this is very evident in ALL that she does.”

TLS students offered these insights: “She was always fun and very supportive.” “She was kind and always had fun activities planned for us.” “She let us have these tiny little parties.” “She’s kind.” “She loves us no matter what.” “She’s nice.” “She’s always happy.” She’s funny, in a good way.”

As a school leader, I very much value Mrs. Mundt’s devotion to our ministry and calling. When I look at scripture, I Cor. 15:58 captures Angie’s faith and steadfast love for the Timothy Lutheran School Ministry: Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Thank you, Angie Mundt, for being a Timothy School Hero. We are blessed to benefit from your knowledge, your hard work, your devotion and your continual love of Timothy Lutheran School.

In His Service,
Ken Holland
School Administrator
