Middle School Team

5th & 6th Grade / Math Teacher: Amy Hall

Amy Hall joined Pilgrim Lutheran’s staff in 2019.  After first being involved in the Pilgrim community as a parent, she couldn’t say no when given the opportunity to share her love of teaching with Pilgrim as well!  Prior to joining Pilgrim’s faculty, Amy worked for 15 years as a middle school math teacher in the Beaverton School District.  Amy and her husband, Jonathan, have a daughter (Brynn) and a son (Rhys), both of whom currently attend Pilgrim.  In her free time, Amy enjoys playing her violin, going on adventures with her family, and spoiling her 2 cats.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3: 5-6

7th & 8th Grade / Science Teacher: Becky Stehle

Becky Stehle joined the Pilgrim staff in 2001.  She has always been the middle school science teacher and mostly the 8th grade homeroom teacher.  Life science was her first love but chemistry is a close second.  Becky graduated with high honors from Concordia Nebraska in 1997.  She then took her first call to the Ohio district and received  a distinguished new teacher of the year award.  In the summer of 1998 she married her highschool friend and moved to Florida.  She taught high school biology, anatomy and physiology, and chemistry while there.  Since coming to Pilgrim, Becky has been the volleyball coach many of the years, and last year our team won the league championship.  Becky and her husband Chris have 2 children, Elly a senior and Andrew a 5th grader who bring a lot of joy and adventures to their lives.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7
