Fifth and sixth graders bring high levels of energy to the classroom, along with the ability to engage in group discussions and a more rigorous academic setting. To take advantage of these growth patterns, our classroom is set up to encourage student collaboration and include a variety of learning styles so deeper learning can be achieved. By having a multi-grade classroom, we absorb more knowledge and strive to attain high academic levels in preparation for high school. Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.

Elizabeth Kuschel



5th & 6th Grade Teacher

Elizabeth (Liz) Kuschel is excited to begin her first year here at St. John for the 2024-2025 school year as the 5th and 6th grade teacher. Liz has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. Liz has been teaching since 2001. While teaching mainly 3rd grade for 15 years, she has spent over 6 years teaching 5th-8th graders, especially in the areas of Reading and Language. She enjoys guiding and watching students at this age learn to become more responsible and accountable for their choices. She loves the fact that she can do these things in the light of God's Word.

Liz enjoys watching and participating in all kinds of sports and is a big Packers and Milwaukee Brewer fan. She enjoys reading, going to ball games, and spending time with friends. 

"Teaching is a tremendous responsibility and gift. It is truly rewarding to be able to watch so many students grow in not only their understanding of content areas but also their love for their Savior each and every year. It is so amazing to be able to add to my "family" each and every year of my ministry."
