Background: My name is Susan (Brummund) Schauer. I grew up on a 35 acre hobby farm near Cannon Falls, MN with three brothers and five sisters. I am number seven of nine children God blessed Linda and R.C. Brummund with.
In 2010 I got married to my best friend, Alan Schauer, and became a step-mother to two young men and a grandmother to seven children, ages eight months to fifteen years old. I moved to Lafayette and Alan and I became members of Zion Lutheran Church. I also started teaching Sunday School at Zion. I am now enjoying working at God’s Treasure Child Care.
Education: I graduated from Cannon Falls High School in 1969 and from Dr. Martin Luther College in 1973.
My first call was to Sleepy Eye, MN, where I taught K-2 for six years.
I then moved to Winona, MN, where I taught first grade for five years.
Finally, I moved to Redwood Falls, MN, where I taught grades 1-2 for fourteen years.
After teaching for twenty-five years I retired. I continued to live in Redwood Falls working at Jackpot Junction in their tour and travel department and then at Subway. While living in Redwood Falls, I taught Sunday School at St. John Lutheran Church. In 2004 I got involved with the Jesus Cares program at St. John’s. Since then I have been a camp counselor at the Jesus Cares summer Bible camp for adults with developmental challenges.
