MS/HS Teacher Theology and Social Studies & Coach: HS Track and Cross Country

Brief info

Lucas joined the Valley Team in the fall of 2009. He serves our school in a variety of ways including as HS Theology teacher, HS World History teacher, 7th Grade World History teacher, and 8th Grade American History teacher and as coach for the HS Cross Country and HS Track and Field teams. He graduated from Concordia, Nebraska in 2008. Since then he has also taught and coached at St. Paul Lutheran High School in Concordia, Missouri. Lucas' favorite class to teach is "Old Testament" because he loves all of the connections to Jesus that are found. He also has a passion for coaching.

Lucas and his wife, Leah, were married in June of 2012. They have a super busy house with three children under 6 years old: Hazel (now a kindergartener at Valley), Titus, and Olive. Lucas enjoys reading, running, and playing with his children. Their family attends Faith Lutheran Church in Waterloo.

Lucas says, "The best part about following Jesus is knowing that no matter what happens He is in control and He has a plan."
