Kayla Marty

Led by God’s calling, Kayla Marty stepped into an unknown space as she designed and started a micro-school under the ministry umbrella of Concordia Lutheran Schools of Omaha.  Concordia Ignite is a modern, one-room schoolhouse design that provides a personalized learning experience aimed to spark each child’s God-given potential. 

Past experiences have proved to be stepping stones to lead Kayla to where she is today.  Kayla received her teaching degree and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Concordia Nebraska.  Experience in three prior Lutheran elementary schools gave Kayla the chance to learn best practices under the leadership of outstanding Lutheran educators.  Whether it was coaching, developing summer programs, mentoring, leading Bible studies, or directing VBS with 400+ children, each experience provided lessons and skills that would help in the future.

No other experience would be of greater impact than the experience of becoming a mother to Micah, Kaleb, and Karis.  Always looking for ways to educate and meet their social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual needs, Kayla discovered the micro-school movement and started planning what would one day become Concordia Ignite.

Kayla and Matt, her husband, are enjoying the opportunity to raise their family in Omaha and enjoy family activities including sports, fishing, reading, traveling, and being active in their church community. Kayla's favorite Bible verse is 2 Timothy 1:7.
