Mr. Erdmann graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in social science from Concordia University, Nebraska. He is currently working on a Master's Degree. In his own words,
" Teaching at Immanuel is a blessing because I have the opportunity to serve with others who are committed to preparing students for academic success while sharing the love of Jesus. I appreciate the 176-year history that Immanuel has of valuing the proclamation of the Gospel and recognizing the importance of sharing that message through the education of young people. Being in my thirteenth year of teaching, it is a joy to see how God is leading and directing the lives of my previous students as they grow into teenagers and then young adults. In the classroom, I value having fun while learning. I am known for “pretending” to be a colonist to teach the students about the American Revolution and have a long tradition of incorporating food into my lessons. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, it has been a privilege to coach Immanuel’s academic teams.
When I am not at Immanuel, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife, Rachel, and three sons, Benjamin, Stephen, and Jonathan, have been very supportive over the last couple of years while I studied to earn my master’s degree. In my free time, I like to garden and bake. However, my favorite hobby is researching my genealogy. Genealogy has allowed me to connect with distant cousins from all over the country and even in other countries, and I have discovered more than one connection to people at Immanuel."
