Christine Gerbitz

Grades K-8 Teacher

I am excited to have a role in reopening the school at Peace Thru Christ. Teaching elementary school has been something I saw myself doing, even at a young age. Immanuel Lutheran High School and Immanuel Lutheran College was where I gained an invaluable base in the true Word of God. Then a detour was taken into farming, raising a family and banking. Each of these detours has prepared me to be a better teacher than I would have been without them.

I have educational experience from raising 5 children who are now adults. Our family has always been involved in Agriculture which led me to participate in a Wisconsin Farm Bureau leadership program. That program inspired me to continue pursuing my life-long dream to be a teacher. In 2022, I graduated from UW-Madison, certified to teach grades 1-8 and English as a Second Language. Teaching experiences include third and fifth grades; and most recently 6th grade English and Social Studies. I am looking forward to working with students and families as school starts this fall.

Our family joined Peace Thru Christ in December of 2005. Involvement in church includes teaching Sunday School, being a member of the Evangelism committee, Hannah’s Helping Hands, the School Start up committee, and directing the church choir.

I am a retired professor from the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My professional experience includes research, teaching and academic administration.

Christian elementary education has always been important to me. My first professional position was as Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. When the opportunity arose for me to move from Purdue to Wisconsin, an important consideration was the opportunity for our two children to attend a Lutheran Christian Day School in Madison.

I have been a member of the Peace Thru Christ congregation since 2011, and will soon complete my eighth year as congregational President. I am pleased to support and engage in the re-opening of the Peace Thru Christ Lutheran School. Lord, bless our efforts.
