I (Katie Scepanski) was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in July of 1980. I was baptized and remained a member at Mount Olive Lutheran Church in Milwaukee through my college years. I went to Hi Mount for Kindergarten, St. Catherine’s Catholic school for 1st-3rd grade, and joined the Whitnall School District for 5th-12th grade after moving to Greenfield in 1988.
In high school, I played clarinet and danced with the color guard for the Whitnall Falcons Marching Band. I was also involved in Winter guard (an indoor Color guard experience) and was on the pom-pon squad.
I am a Concordia University Wisconsin alumni. I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Family Studies.
I started my teaching career right out of college at St. Peter Immanuel Lutheran School. From there I moved onto Pilgrim Lutheran school in Milwaukee. After the unfortunate closing of Pilgrim, I moved onto Elm Grove Lutheran.
Aside from teaching, I have a wonderful family that I love to spend time with. I have a wonderful husband and two children, Danielle (sophomore at Martin Luther High School) and Brandon (8th grade). I couldn’t have been blessed with a better family. We love to watch the Packers together, play board games together, ride bikes, fish and swim at the lake, take walks with the dog, and lounge around with our cats!
Throughout my life, I have truly learned to thank God for ALL things, the fortunate AND the unfortunate. He is merciful and FULL of love for all. He has done more with my life than I have ever dreamed it to be. I can’t wait to see what else He has planned for me!
