Kirsten Suhr

Kirsten Suhr was born in Topeka, Kansas. She spent her elementary and junior high years at Topeka Lutheran and attended Topeka West High School. While there Kirsten nurtured her love of music and theater and played volleyball. She then attended Concordia University in Seward, NE where she continued her involvement in music and theater, played four years of college volleyball, participated in an audition group called Singers, studied flute, and performed as the "mother" in a one-act play. In 1990, Mrs. Suhr earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education with an added endorsement in early childhood.

Mrs. Suhr’s first call was to Open Arms Child Development Center in Alpharetta, GA., which was followed by a position teaching pre-school aged children at Mt. Pisgah United Methodist Church. She then relocated to Omaha and continued to teach preschool at First Lutheran Church in Papillion. In 1999, she took a call to the association that would become Concordia Lutheran Schools of Omaha as the first kindergarten teacher for Bread of Life. In 2007, she began teaching second grade. Mrs. Suhr is currently pursuing a master's degree through Nebraska Wesleyan University in Curriculum and Instructional Leadership.

Kirsten’s husband, Gale, is a project analyst at First Data Corporation. They have four children--Jarod, Ryan, Christian, and Adelynn. Mrs. Suhr continues to be involved in music and theater both at church and in the community and also loves to garden and paint. Her favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:38-39.
