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.
