Meet Mrs. Kristi Schkade...
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Phil. 4:13
I grew upon a hog, beef cattle, and crop farm in Nebraska, where my elementary and high schools were literally in the middle of cornfields.
I attended Concordia College (now University) in Seward, NE and achieved a degree in elementary education with a concentration in English and a music minor. My first three years of teaching were in Lewiston, MN at a small country school. I then spent 13 years teaching third and fourth graders in Hamel, IL. I accepted God's call to Honey Creek in 2014 and am greatly enjoying my service here.
My passions are my faith, reading, and music. It's exciting to get to incorporate all of those in my classroom every day! I serve both our church and school as the music director, so you may see me directing a choir or playing the organ sometimes.
My husband, Jonathan, is a children's author and editor, and is a great dad to our two children, Jamie and Molly.
