Teacher: Mrs. Karissa Heun
Family info: My husband, Ryan, and I were married in 2013, which is when we moved to Lincoln. My family is originally from Fremont, NE, where both of my parents are Lutheran School teachers. I also have a younger brother who is going into the field of law enforcement.
Ministry experience(s): This is my third year teaching and all of those years have been at Trinity. I attended Concordia University in Seward and graduated in December 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Education Degree with a concentration in English Language Learners along with a Spanish Minor and Coaching Endorsement.
Hobbies: I love coaching volleyball and I am the head middle school volleyball coach at Lincoln Lutheran. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
Favorite Bible verse: “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
5th Grade: Students are expected to treat others and themselves with respect, follow directions, and use good, Christian behavior at all times. Assignments are given daily in most subject areas. Classroom time is given to complete daily work. In addition to daily work, some homework assignments are given which will be due the next day. Some special projects will be given more time to complete. Forty-five minutes is the average amount of time your fifth grader should spend on homework; however, if it is consistently more than one hour, please contact me so we can help your child get back on track. Work assigned during absences should be made up as quickly as possible, so that the student’s workload does not become overwhelming. A good rule of thumb is to have one extra day per absent day to complete assignments, or to be completely caught up by the next weekend. It will be my pleasure to work with you and your child, and I am looking forward to the school year. God’s blessings to you and your families.
Mission Statement: To teach, care for, and listen to students, as well as learn from them, while helping them to develop into responsible, productive, Christian members of society.
