Fifth Grade

Mr. Ron Schleef

Mr. Schleef begins his 33rd year in the teaching ministry. He will be teaching 5th grade. He and his wife Gale have seven children. And they both love gardening; Mr. Schleef loves working with the vegetable and Gale loves working with the flowers. 

My teaching philosophy:

I love teaching in our Lutheran schools where I have the privilege of teaching students about their Savior and strengthening their faith through the wonders of God's creation.  

My favorite Bible verse:

Psalm 111:10: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." This is also the theme of my classroom.

Why you should consider a Holy Cross education:

Holy Cross is a special place where God's Word is integrated in every subject area. We value relationships with parents, fellow teachers, and all our students. Our students have the blessing to nourish their souls as they continue their walk with the Lord.
