My name is Marie Becker. I was born in Waukesha, WI and have lived in Sussex, WI my entire life. God has blessed me with two wonderful parents and two younger brothers. This fall my name will change from Miss Kriege to Mrs. Becker, since I will marry Philip Becker. Growing up I attended St. John’s in Lannon, WI and then attended Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School (KMLHS). I graduated from KMLHS in 2007. I am thankful that my parents sent me to a Lutheran grade school and high school. Both institutions watered and cared for my faith the Holy Spirit planted at my baptism. After high school I attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN where I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and in Parish Music. I graduated from MLC on May 19th, 2012.
I am eager to start teaching 2nd grade! I’ve heard many good things about my future students; I can’t wait to meet them! I have confidence knowing God is and will be with me always, I am reminded of this in Isaiah 41:10. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. “
