Hello! My name is Bonnie Lewis and I have been teaching classes at East Fork Lutheran School for 23 years after the 2022-23 school year.
I was born in Whiteriver with 9 siblings to my mom and dad. I graduated from Alchesay High School in Whiteriver. At the age of 16, I began teaching Sunday School which I continued to do until 2014. I also taught pre-school at East Fork when the nursery was open from 1988 until it closed it 1993. It was a WELS organization, so I actually have 28 years in the WELS at the end of this year. Working other places, I longed to be back at East Fork Lutheran School.
I graduated in 1999 from Ottawa University. We didn't go to Kansas, but they brought the professors to us here in Whiteriver. It was university classes for those of us who wanted a teaching degree.
