Lorene is the Early Childhood Director at Christ the King Lutheran School. She grew up in the Pacific Northwest, in a small town near Spokane, Washington. She got her BA at the University of Idaho. However, she has been a Memphian since 1993. She served 14 wonderful years as a three-year old teacher, and in that time, she even taught principal Laury’s daughter.

During her time at Christ The King Lutheran School, she says that she fell in love with the teachers, staff, pastors, and families. When asked how she ended up at CTK school, she admits that sometimes you are just guided to where “God wants you to go. Sometimes it’s a surprising journey, but in the end you find a place like Christ the King which is the ‘right’ place.”

Lorene says that her favorite part of Christ the King Lutheran School is the ministry and family environment. In her time as a preschool teacher, she really valued the connections she made with the kids. She says that the kids have “so much love to give.” Mrs. Beaudry is constantly amazed by how many people tell her that they love the school too. She says that Christ the King Lutheran School is a special place, “it’s a little school with a big heart.”
