Meet: Beth Sydow

Elizabeth Sydow is a teacher at Grace Lutheran Church in Fridley, Minnesota. Beth attended Immanuel Lutheran High School and College. She accepted a call to teach at Immanuel, Mankato in 1966. She taught there for three years, during which time she also received a BS degree in Elementary Education from Mankato State University.

In 1969 Beth interrupted her teaching career in order to raise a family. She and her husband James have four children: Jennifer (26), Jay (24), Stephen (22), and Daniel (18). She returned to teaching in 1985 at Grace, Fridley.

Beth chose teaching as a career because she enjoys working with young people in preparing them for this life and the life to come. Her favorite subjects are religion and math. At recess she enjoys kickball. For Beth the most rewarding part of teaching is seeing students apply the Word of God in life situations.

Outside of school Beth’s interests include reading, running, and attending the sporting events of her children.

We’d like to thank Beth for her many years of service to our synod schools.
