At the end of March, the Board of Directors called Mr. Steven Vasold to serve in our science department. He has declined our call and will remain at Luther Prep School in Wisconsin. The Board will now take steps to determine how to fill this science vacancy.
Mr. Frank Kim has accepted our call to teach mathematics at ALA. Mr. Mark Steiner plans to retire at the end of this school year, and Mr. Kim will make the move to ALA this summer. Welcome, Mr. Kim! We thank God for providing us with a well-qualified math teacher.
Mr. Mark Steiner
Mark Steiner, mathematics teacher at ALA since 2007, has announced his plans to retire from the teaching ministry effective June 30, 2021. The Board of Directors will seek to extend a call for a new math teacher in January.
Mr. Gary Gray
Mr. Gray has announced his retirement at the end of the school year. Mr. Gray has served at ALA since 1994. He teaches Biology and AP Biology—in fact, he is only the second biology teacher in ALA's 43 year history (Mr. Adickes was the first)! During his time here, Mr. Gray has also coached several sports, served as Assistant Principal, and led the Student Council as advisor.
Mr. John Mueller
ALA's Financial Director, John Mueller, has announced his retirement which will take effect after this school year. Mr. Mueller started in 2011 and served in this position for a few years prior to that as well.
