Brittany Newton Wilber

Brittany Newton Wilber’s formation as a Lutheran school teacher began at home. Her parents, Tom and Jeannie, modeled and encouraged regular corporate worship, Scripture memory, and daily devotions. Her uncle, Rev. Ken Krause, introduced her to New Testament Greek during her elementary years. Her grandpa, Rev. E. George Krause, inculcated a love of language and literature. Her grandma, Irma Newton, repeatedly told her of the blessings to be found in the Lutheran school teacher’s vocation. 

While in high school, Wilber had the opportunity to take courses at Rock Valley College in Rockford, Illinois. Dr. Penelope Blake, a professor of humanities at the school, was a significant influence on her, and is the woman to whom Wilber credits her passion for the subject. The next step in Wilber’s education brought her to Concordia University Chicago in River Forest, Illinois. It is from this institution that she received her Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in Theology and Elementary Education. More valuable than a diploma, she also received the gift of hearing and studying the Word of God on a daily basis, and the occasion to meet many Christians who emboldened her to continue growing in faith. 

The most recent step in Wilber’s formal education occurred at the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas, where she earned her Master of Humanities degree with a concentration in Classical Education. Here, she was inspired, shaped, and challenged by wonderful professors, especially Dr. Matthew Post and Dr. Susan Hanssen. 

In addition to serving at Faith Lutheran School since 2016, Wilber has served at Messiah Lutheran Classical Academy in Keller, Texas and Valley Lutheran School in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She delights in assisting parents as they teach their children the Christian faith. Her responsibilities at FLS include teaching 5th Grade Homeroom and 4th Grade Latin.
