“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
This has been a verse I rely upon in both my work at VCS and in my own life. What a comfort to know that He sees the completed work even while we are in progress. What a comfort among the body of believers to be able to recognize that his good work will be completed in one another. We can rest assured, even on imperfect days, or on unfamiliar paths that there is an opportunity for victory. More important still is that from each victory and challenge there is the response to praise.
Whether you join VCS as a student, a family, a teacher, or faculty member you join a growing and maturing Christ-centered school. You essentially become a “builder.” We want you to know that your part is vital. God’s purpose for you here is to be part of a continuing legacy. – Welcome.
Meet Our Administration Staff
I am happy to be serving at Valley Christian School in the gifts God has given me. My husband and I have five children and two son-in-laws. Our two younger children love school at Valley Christian and are so thankful to attend a school where they can learn about God's truth in the Bible alongside their educational courses. My happiest times are spending time with family, traveling, and fishing on Lake Superior and Lake Michigan.
I am excited and grateful to join the staff at Valley Christian School. My husband and I have two children so you can often find me at a hockey rink, basketball court or soccer field. Some of my hobbies include reading, cooking, gardening and trying to get my cat to like me. Mrs. Schulze holds a Bachelor of Science - Business Administration from University of Wisconsin - River Falls.
I firmly believe in Valley Christian School's motto of Romans 12:2 and am blessed to be a part of this school. I have lived in the area all of my life and am married with 4 children. It fills me with joy and laughter to watch these students grow up and mature in their faith, knowledge, and community involvement throughout the valley.

I have enjoyed a Christian Education all my life and know that Jesus loves me from the tip of my toes to all the hair he has counted on my head. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1v.1 is my favorite verse because he is in control and will continue to be and for that I am so thankful.
We welcome Miss Peikert as our new 3rd grade teacher! More information coming soon.
B.S. Elementary Education with General Science minor, University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire.
BS - Elementary Education and Bible Crown College. Minor in Psychology.
It is with great excitement I enter into teaching 5th grade at Valley Christian School. I had the privilege to teach in the elementary grades at Valley Christian for seventeen years when I first began my teaching career. Each of our three children attended and graduated from Valley Christian during this time. After our children were raised, my husband and I felt called to teach overseas in Christian schools. We served for nine years in two different schools while overseas. As we have returned home, we feel very blessed to have the opportunity to return to Valley Christian.
Prior to teaching, I grew up in a Christian home, graduated from high school, and attended Crown College where I majored in Elementary Education and Bible and minored in psychology.
My hope and goal are that the students I teach will learn and be given tools to seek to be life-long learners, love and service for the One true God, love others, and hold firmly to a Christian world view in all they encounter.
B.A. in Bible and Sacred Music with emphasis in piano from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in Owatonna, MN M.A.T. in Theology in Biblical Counseling from Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Plymouth, MN
“Life is not all about me. Life is about knowing and loving God and serving others.” That is my motto. I find it a great joy to connect Biblical principles and the glory of our God with the academic subjects. That’s why I love Christian education. It is rewarding to watch students connect the lessons in the books with daily living and with the wisdom of our God. I have enjoyed the years of subbing in all the grades at Valley Christian School, and I look forward to teaching the 6th graders on a full-time basis. Teaching that changes lives for eternity is my passion.
University of Wisconsin Eau Claire with a comprehensive Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education
I was born and raised in Saint Croix Falls, Wisconsin. I’ve always enjoyed the scenery and Fall colors that God paints; so, I often take walks in Interstate Park to capture photographs of His artistry. I was inspired to become a teacher by the kindness and compassion of my own high school teachers. I am an avid reader and writer, who loves to share the fun of language and expression with students. I challenge students to think of their skills as an art form just waiting to be mastered. For His glory we were made, so for His glory, we should strive to be our best.
BA in Intercultural Studies from Providence College & Theological Seminary and a MA in Ministry Leadership from Crown College.
The joy of the Lord is my strength!
I endeavor to know God more and more as I was saved when I was in first grade. The journey is not unlike the Israelites coming out of slavery to the Promise Land.
I hope to bring to Valley Christian a genuine passion for Christ while teaching history with a Christian worldview. Federick Douglas said, “It is easier to raise strong children than to repair broken men.” I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of their young lives.

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god

I attended Valley as a student from 1st grade until I graduated in 2011. I appreciated the Christian education I received and now I enjoy being able to share that same Christian worldview as a teacher.
B.S. Law and Policy: pre-law, Liberty University
I am a resident of the small town of Minong, where I have spent the past fifteen years of this blessed life God has given me. I spent two wonderful years of school with Valley and graduated through them in 2018. I am so excited to be back to teach, influence, and encourage students the way I was during my time here. In my spare time I am most often found reading books, tending to my latest attempts at a garden crocheting, and spoiling my two cats. Being outside in nature is my favorite place to be, I love observing and learning about how the world works just as the Lord told it to, My favorite way to dot his is through watching my bees make and store their honey. I cannot wait to help reveal to the students the amazing power and glory of our beautiful God in the world that He has crafted.
