Rebecca Jeseritz

Rebecca Jeseritz was born in Huron, South Dakota, but spent most of her years growing up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, attending JFK Elementary, Edison and Memorial Middle, and Roosevelt High Schools. Her family moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin when she was a sophomore in high school, and she graduated from Sheboygan Falls High School. She attended Concordia University-Wisconsin, receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Lutheran Elementary/Middle Education with a minor in Speech Communications in 2004. She later received her Master’s degree in Reading from Concordia University-Nebraska in 2010.

Rebecca received and accepted a Call to serve at Concordia Lutheran Schools of Omaha in May 2004 and has taught at Concordia since, teaching 5th grade English and Social Studies, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 12th grade English, Speech, and Physical Education. In addition to teaching, she has coached Speech team and coordinates many events at the school, including biannual Faith in Action Day.

Rebecca and her husband, Brett, live an active lifestyle. Her free time can be spent working out as well as devoting time to various ministries at her church. She has a beloved yet aggravating dog that receives the majority of her affection and is popular with most people who meet him, including many children in her neighborhood as well as her students. Rebecca’s favorite thing about teaching is being able to be a positive Christian role model in the lives of young adults.
