Mr. Steve Menke, Principal

   As a former graduate of Our Lady Queen of Peace School, I am excited to come home where my education began, and I am honored to be able to work in a place that allows me to use my faith as I help others to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. 

     I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.  As being a lifelong learner, I earned my Master’s Degree in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University.  I spent 21 years at St. Francis/Holy Ghost School in Jerseyville, teaching seventh and eighth-grade history and religion for 19 years before spending two years there as principal. 

   I am married to my wonderful wife, Kim. Together we have two awesome boys.  As members of St. Mary’s Parish in Alton, our faith is at the center of our family.  We really enjoy spending time with our family, and you can find us at various sporting or church events.  I am excited and look forward to the next chapter of my life as the new principal at Our Lady Queen of Peace School.
