Marit Esterberg lives in Independence with her husband and two children. She was born in Norway and moved to the Minneapolis area when she was 11. Marit attended college in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and received her degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood from the University of Wisconsin, Stout. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, biking, tennis and gardening. Redeemer's greatest asset, according to Marit, is the "family like" atmosphere of Redeemer. She has loved this atmosphere since she first walked in the door 13 years ago. Both her children attended school at Redeemer Lutheran School and she has enjoyed working as the LAP coordinator for 2 years, and working in the preschool room at Redeemer Lutheran School for 3 years before that. I am very excited to work with the youngest students, they have always been my passion. Her daughter attends college in Iowa at Luther College and her son is at Mayer Lutheran High School.
"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." ~Matthew 17:20
