Leaders in Urban Education

Teachers at The New LIFE School (TNLS), a ministry of Lutheran Social Services of New York, engaged in a small group exercise during a professional development workshop on blended learning and innovative teaching practices, led by Marlene Lund, Executive Director of the Center for Urban Education Ministries.


For years, Lutheran and other parochial schools have provided quality Christian education, nurturing children in mind, body and spirit. These children grow to be mature adults who contribute to society in their own right.
