It Takes A Team
Lutheran Special Education Ministries does not function alone. We work in partnership with schools across the country to best serve the individual needs of that student body. It takes a team – LSEM, the teacher, and the principal – working together to serve God’s unique learners.
The LSEM program at Peace Lutheran School in Shelby Twp, MI is an example of this positive teamwork that makes a difference in the learning lives of kids. The team consists of LSEM, our teacher Elisabeth Bohde, and Peace Lutheran’s principal Carol Stathakis. When these three strings come together with the purpose of serving God’s children, great things happen.
The program assists children in a variety of different ways. Some students receive directly taught lessons, and others use the LSEM Resource Room for support. Carol Stathakis, the principal at Peace Lutheran, is happy to report that “[the students] seem to be doing well with the program.”
According to Mrs. Stathakis, Elisabeth Bohde “is an excellent teammate with the teachers, parents, administrators, and public district staff. She loves her students and plans excellent lessons and programs to help them achieve their full potential.” Mrs. Bohde “has been not only an excellent teacher for our students, but has also been a strong supporter and encourager for them and their parents in concerns that extend beyond academics.”
Mrs. Stathakis also knows and takes advantage of the fantastic resource that LSEM is. “Our LSEM teacher and I have sought additional expertise from time to time from the LSEM directors.” With the principal, teacher, and LSEM working together as a team, the program at Peace Lutheran School is optimized to serve God’s children.
