Hello, my name is Kendall Stroeh. I am originally from Luverne, MN. I graduated from Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA where I studied Secondary Education and History. After college, I taught at a Christian school in South Dakota for one year before moving to Des Moines to be with my wife as she attends medical school at Des Moines University. In Des Moines I have been able to substitute teach and work at Living History Farms. In my free time I love to be outside riding bike or playing sports. I am a big fan of the Twins and Vikings and love to follow them.
History has always been a passion of mine. In school I loved hearing the stories that history has to offer. I was intrigued by the opportunity to discover why people did things, and how our world was shaped by the people and events that came before us. I am passionate about bringing history to life for my students. I want them to see themselves as part of a larger historical narrative. I look forward to wrestling with and examining history, to really dive into what it means to be part of this ongoing narrative. Christian education is another passion of mine. I was blessed with the opportunity to go to a Christian school, and I am constantly thankful for the blessing it was in my life. I was raised in the church by my parents who valued my faith, and Christian education helped me develop my understanding of what it means to be a Christian and what I believe in my faith. Christian education offers a wonderful opportunity to engage learning with a higher purpose. History really is “His Story” and I believe it is an incredible opportunity to examine the history of creation in light of God’s Kingdom and our role as his servants.
