Special Guest Workshop Leader

Laura Langhoff Arndt is...a girl with a mission. "I am a professional educator with over 15 years experience teaching middle and high school students in both public and charter schools. I have a B.A. in Secondary Education and an M.A. in Classroom Instruction as well as school board leadership and administrative experience. I am also a certified Director of Christian Education (DCE) in the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church (LCMS).
The majority of my DCE experience has been on a volunteer basis as I am drawn to smaller congregations that cannot afford extra staff. I love finding resources and equipping and encouraging lay leaders and have always had a passion for education in the church and finding ways to apply current educational research to religious education."
