Welcome from Calvary's New Principal, Mrs. Fischer
Welcome to Calvary Lutheran School! Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Michelle Fischer, and I’m the new principal at Calvary. I was born and raised in Puyallup, WA, about 45 minutes south of the Seattle area. I love to camp, hike and travel with my family. My husband, Paul, was raised in Marlette, MI, and is retired from the US Air Force after serving 20 years. We have two active boys: Nathaniel (13), who is going into 8th grade, and Johnathon (11), who is going into 6th grade. Nathaniel loves to read, play sports, play guitar and go camping. Johnathon loves to play piano, play soccer and travel.
I received my BA from Eastern Washington University in Cheney, WA. I majored in reading with a minor in Special Education. I received my MA from California State University in Chico, CA. My degree is in Education Administration and Leadership. I received my Colloquy from Concordia Portland.
I have been blessed to serve in the education field for 21 years. During those 21 years, I have held numerous positions in public and private schools. I’ve been a Director for the Child Development Center on Elmendorf Air Force Base, 1st grade teacher, reading specialist, Title 1 coordinator, 3rd grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, school liaison for the government, and for the last 5 years principal at Bethlehem Lutheran School in Denver, CO. I love teaching and working with students and their families. There is nothing better than seeing a student’s face when he or she really gets a new concept for the first time.
I am very excited to be serving as principal of Calvary. I have heard great things about the school and families that attend Calvary. I look forward to getting to know all the faculty, students and families this year. I know God has blessed this move and will continue to bless this ministry in the years to come.
