Katie Nafzger is an educator trained for the middle and high school classroom. She spent five years teaching 6th-8th grade science, history, and German at Lutheran schools in Colorado and Missouri. In the classroom she sought to make learning more "fun" by engaging students through simulations, educational games, and project-based learning.
In addition to traditional classroom settings, she also has experience in a variety of unique educational contexts. Katie worked at the Frankfurt International School with the International Baccalaureate program; she taught a geography course for a home school cooperative in Minnesota; and she spent three years homeschooling three of her children, one at a time. Along the way, she learned first-hand the challenges and the opportunities that come with personalized education.
Most recently, Katie became a student again and completed a master's degree in curriculum and STEAM education—a good fit for a teacher bent on employing innovative techniques in the classroom. She currently brings together her passion for learning, her love for people, and her commitment to faith development in her role as the Women's Coordinator at Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis. In this role, she coordinates curriculum for student wives and families preparing for full-time ministry.
Katie and her husband Peter have four children, Olivia, Johann, August, and Louisa. They are members of Messiah Lutheran Church in Saint Louis, Missouri.
