LEA Workshop
Hosted by the Nebraska District – LCMS
In partnership with the Kansas District and the Iowa West District
With participation from the Rocky Mountain and Missouri Districts.

The Early Childhood Network Leadership Institute was created by LEA and titled “The Building
Blocks of Leadership”. Thirty-three conference attendees from the four districts, four presenters
from the Lutheran Education Association, and the three District Executives from Iowa West,
Kansas, and Nebraska participated in seven training modules titled: #1 Qualities of a Great
Director; #2 Strengthening Staff Relationships; #3 The Director as Manager- The Enrollment
Dilemma; #4 The Director as Manager- Overdue Fees, Policies and Procedures; #5 The
Director as Supervisor- Staffing for Quality; #6 The Director as Supervisor- Mentoring Quality
Staff; and #7 “Immersion.” The participants experienced activities to help them comprehend the
concepts in each module. Out of the 33 participants at the 2007 LEA ECEnet Leadership
Institute, 18 also attended the 2006 event. The plan is to repeat this experience next year using
the same format with different modules.

School Begins Again:

staffs, students and their parents during this school year.


Texas Principal Is 1,000th LCMS CUEnet Colloquy Student

HOUSTON-"I've been stretched. I've been strengthened in the faith," Dr. Mary Beth Gaertner
told the 63rd Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod during sessions July

Gaertner, the principal of Salem Lutheran School in Tomball, Texas, was introduced to the
convention as the 1,000th teacher enrolled in the teacher colloquy program through CUEnet, the
nationwide online technical network of the LCMS Concordia University System. The colloquy
instruction, launched in 2001, allows Lutheran school teachers to obtain the theological
instruction and other necessary courses to become rostered as teachers in the Synod.

"We have an enormous, long distance to go," said Heather Stueve, professor at Concordia
University, Portland, and coordinator of the CUEnet teacher colloquy program, as she introduced
Gaertner. "We have 11,000 teachers in our schools who are without this training."

LCMS congregations operate 2,488 early childhood, elementary and high schools, enrolling
280,000 students. The schools employ 18,000 teachers.

The theme of the July 14-19 convention is "One Message-Christ! His Love is Here for You!"

At Emmaus, Elhambra, CA, we have an outreach ministry to many Asian families. We have a
first grader who has been in our school since he was three. Our first grade teacher this year
really emphasizes The Bible. They spent time on the first commandment this spring. Here's
how Jonathan relates the story, " I was a Buddhist, then I heard there was only one God. I told
my mom three times that I couldn't believe in a lot of gods. Then, my mom wanted to become a
Christian with me.

The mom came and spoke with our pastor, wanting to better understand this God that her son
kept talking about, took instruction class, and she and her son have been baptized.

Praise the Lord.

On May 3, 2007, Good Shepherd Lutheran School & Preschool in Lincoln, Nebraska, celebrated
its first Latin Awards Ceremony. Nine students from the school took the Introduction to Latin

Examination, more than 134,000 students world wide took the test. Each of the 50 United States
