Ronda Brandt – 2nd Grade Teacher
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a Lutheran school teacher. I grew up attending a Lutheran grade school and high school. I attended Concordia College in Ann Arbor and graduated with a degree in Lutheran education. I have taught at St. Peter’s Eastpointe and Luther Memorial in Cleveland, Ohio. I subbed for many years at St. Peter until 2012 when I began teaching 2nd grade. My husband John teaches at Lutheran North and we have been blessed with two children, Aaron and Alayna, who attended school at St. Peter. I love teaching in a Lutheran school because I have the privilege and responsibility to share with my students the eternal and unconditional love of their Savior, Jesus Christ. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I pray my students will know the earthly and eternal blessings of being a child of God. One of my favorite hymns that I love teaching my students is “God’s Own Child I Gladly Say It.”
God’s own child, I gladly say it:
I am baptized into Christ!
He, because I could not pay it,
Gave my full redemption price.
Do I need earth’s treasures many?
I have one worth more than any
That brought me salvation free
Lasting to eternity!
