Mr. Don Duitsman

Don Duitsman currently serves as the Activities Director at Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School. He began his service at Lincoln Lutheran in January of 1985. Before coming to Lincoln he taught at St. Paul Lutheran in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and Zion Lutheran in Hastings, Nebraska. He received his education at Concordia University in Seward, NE and received his Masters Degree at St. Francis College in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He grew up in Linn, Kansas, which is a small town of about 400 people, and has two sisters, Carol and Kristin.  Regardless of not growing up on a farm he led a farm lifestyle. He was a member of FFA and 4-H and had plenty of animals around—“cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, sheep and a cow or two.” Mr. Duitsman is married to Linda and they have four children: David, Tim, Mark and Jenny. His wife was a registered nurse at Bryan LGH hospital but now is a stay-at-home grandma.  David and his wife, Kristin, along with daughter, Dagny, live in Boca Raton, Florida; Tim and his wife Jenny, have two sons, Joshua and Jacob, and they live here in Lincoln; Mark and his wife, Abbie, and daughter, Lillian, live in Denver, Colorado; and Jenny and husband, Leif, and newborn (April 6, 2011) daughter, Chloe, live in Lincoln. He came to Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School because “As we traveled back and forth from Kansas to Indiana we often thought about how great it would be to someday be closer to family and maybe live in Lincoln. After being offered the Principal's job in Hastings and taking that position for several years, a position at Lincoln Lutheran was available and I accepted the offer. Lincoln has been a great place to raise a family and Lincoln Lutheran is a wonderful place for a solid education. It has been an amazing road growing from a small junior high school to now, a class C1 NSAA Middle/High School.” Mr. Duitsman does what he does because he has a passion for it. “To teach, coach, and just observe students as they participate and grow in their education and activities (music, drama, speech, sports, etc.) is what it is all about.” In his free time he enjoys sports (mainly watching) and playing with the grandchildren(includes fishing), playing cards and board games, shooting pool and “believe it or not,” watching reality television shows.
