Join us in Welcoming Ms. Houghton

Ms. Houghton leverages over 20 years of teaching experience across a wide spectrum of disciplines, backgrounds, and sensibilities. She has worked with all ages, levels, and “walks of life” both internationally and here in the US. She has taught both in-person and online in a number of curricular areas including English, ESL, education, and psychology. Her specialties in literature, writing composition, and creative writing will provide a great benefit to our students as they prepare for their academic future. 


Ms. Houghton has a background full of a wealth of well-rounded interests in musical performance, visual arts, curriculum design and pedagogy, speaking competitions and oral interpretation, and acting. As a Korean-adoptee who grew up as a Lutheran on a Native American reservation in South Dakota, Ms. Houghton also brings a very unique life perspective that will benefit our students. 


Ms. Houghton and her son recently relocated to Kansas City. Please join us in welcoming Ms. Melissa Houghton to our Lutheran High School family.
