Jodi Vetter views teaching, in a public or private setting, as a mission. She earned a Masters in Education, taught in the public school system, and then joined us at Santiam Christian in 2011. She believes teaching at Santiam Christian is a privilege that allows her the opportunity to serve by walking alongside families, assisting children in learning about themselves and the world around them, using the Word of God as a foundation.
Having the opportunity to teach a child’s heart is a privilege Jodi does not take lightly. At Santiam Christian, Jodi believes parents can have confidence that teachers are dedicated to supporting students academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually all through the lense of Scripture. Students learn to view their faith holistically and that their faith is not something that is only applicable in limited situations. Educating the whole child is priceless to Jodi.
“I am blessed to guide students every day to work hard, play hard, be kind and follow Jesus!” ~ Jodi Vetter
Outside of school Jodi enjoys exploring the outdoors with her husband and two children. Whether on two wheels or four, gliding on top, through or alongside the beautiful forests, lakes, creeks or oceanside of the Pacific Northwest, Jodi says, “This is what refreshes me and feeds my creativity.” Jodi sees how gritt, mindfulness, focus, and determination in her adventures transfer directly to her classroom, teaching students to keep stretching themselves to develop into the person God has created them to be.
