Mrs. Luetkenhaus

Hi!  My name is Minette Luetkenhaus.  I am a graduate of Texas State University with a degree in elementary education.  I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 amazing sons.  All 3 of my boys attended Northwood from kindergarten to fifth grade, so I had a student at Northwood for 13 years!  This will be my twelfth year teaching and my second in first grade.  Before I started teaching at Northwood, I taught 2nd grade in another district for 9 years.  Then, I took some time off and stayed at home with my boys.  During that time, I served our little school as a member of the PTA, a volunteer, and a substitute.   I truly love our school and community with all my heart and feel so lucky to get to teach these little Unicorns every day!
