Meet: Gene Schreyer
Gene Schreyer is a teacher at Immanuel Lutheran High School in Mankato, Minn. He began his teaching career there in 1963.
Mr. Schreyer attended Bethany Lutheran High School in Mankato and received an AA degree from Bethany Lutheran Junior College. He went on to earn both his elementary education degree and his theological degree from Immanuel Lutheran College and Seminary in Mankato. He also received a B.S. degree in education from Mankato State University. He chose to pursue the teaching ministry because he enjoyed the education field and working with young people.
In 1976 he had the privilege of participating in the CLC Lutheran Heritage Tour of Europe and the Middle East, visiting seven countries in 21 days. He was able to use this trip to enhance his teaching of German and various history classes. His favorite classroom saying is, “Those who will not learn from history may be doomed to repeat it.”
Outside the classroom Gene enjoys spending time with his wife Grace (nee Meyer) and their three children Juliana, Brent, and Christiana. Favorite Family activities include traveling, camping, and hiking.
One of the most rewarding aspects of his teaching is seeing students grow in their faith and having the opportunity to teach the children of former students.
We thank Gene for his 34 years of faithful service in God’s Kingdom work. may the Lord continue to bless his teaching ministry.
