Hi!  I am Delana (Whelan) Luebkemann the preschool teacher for St. Marks.  I have my BA in Early Childhood Education.  I have worked within the early childhood field for 18 years in different settings mostly daycare and Head Start.  I was fortunate to attend a Lutheran grade school (St. Peter’s Evansville, IL) and high school (Metro East Lutheran High School Edwardsville, IL) where I was able to grow in my faith.  I am excited to be joining the St. Marks family bringing my experiences and ideas to create an inviting, engaging classroom where students will grow in their faith and academics. 

I reside in Red Bud, IL.  I live with my husband Ryan, son Gavin (19), two dogs Rigel and Bane, and my horse Chesney.  I enjoy being outdoors, I am the daughter of a farmer, love playing sports, jamming to music, but most of all I love the beach and hanging with my family! 

God’s blessings to you as we begin the 2018-2019 school year.  I look forward to meeting and working with you all.
