Miss Maertz’s 3rd Grade Class Page!

Meet Miss Maertz

I teach the third grade students at St. Paul’s. I’m looking forward to guiding and engaging the students in their learning. It is a special privilege to be a part of their spiritual journey as they grow closer to their Savior Jesus. I’ve spent my whole life in the midwest. I grew up in the states of South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. After graduating from Martin Luther College in 1982, I started my teaching ministry in a small town in Michigan at a two-room school where I taught different combinations of grades K-4. From there I moved to Sparta, WI where I taught grades 3 and 4. Then my ministry took me to Harland, WI. Most of my years there were spent teaching grades 1 and 2. My favorite pastime is being out in the sunshine enjoying God’s creation. Though I haven’t done any special training, I enjoy photography and art. I also enjoy music and playing the organ and piano for church services. I would also like to learn to play the cello.
