Hi, my name is Mr. Mark Rudzinski. I grew up in Kansas City, MO were I attended Our Saviour Lutheran School from Preschool through 1st grade. Than when Our Saviour closed it's doors for good after my 1st grade year, I moved to a new school, Calvary Lutheran. I attended Calvary from 2nd grade through 8th grade. I then went to high school at Kansas City Lutheran High School where I was active in three sports as well as drama. After high school I attended Concordia University, River Forest where I graduated with a BA degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Earth Science. I am now in my 11th year of teaching and my 8th year here at Immanuel where I currently serve as 7th grade homeroom teacher and 7th and 8th grade science teacher and 8th grade Health teacher. I also serve as Immanuel's athletic director. I come from a family of teachers as my dad and three siblings are all currently teaching or at least were trained to be teachers in the LCMS. I am blessed with an amazing wife and three daughters. I also enjoy home improvement projects and spending time with my wife and kids.
