Lisa Schumacher Bio

Lisa Schumacher is a graduate of St. Boniface and Pope John Central Catholic Schools.  (Class of 1987).  She has an undergraduate degree in elementary and middle school education with an emphasis in math and science from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  She earned her master’s degree in P-8 school administration in 2010 and received her high school administration endorsement in 2020, both from Wayne State College.  Schumacher was named Archdiocese of Omaha Administrator of the Year in 2015.

Schumacher began her teaching career at St. Michael’s School in Albion in 1992.  She became the school’s principal in 2008 while she finished her master’s degree.  And, as she begins her 30th year in education, she will become the Pope John XXIII/St. Boniface Catholic Schools new administrator.

As a school leader Lisa Schumacher is growth oriented, collaborative, loves leading with faith, and being an example of Christ’s love for others.  She feels that seeing kids grow academically and then watching them turn to God when life challenges them, makes education the best job ever.  She is fully invested in supporting the Pope John/St. Boniface mission to “foster the spiritual and academic growth of students, while preparing them to live a moral, faith-filled life based on Catholic values.”

Mrs. Schumacher and her husband Kevin (also a 1987 graduate of Pope John) live near Petersburg where they are active members of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Petersburg.  They have three children (Taylor, Kyle, and Kaitey) and one grandchild (Theo).  All three children attended or are currently attending Pope John/St. Boniface Catholic Schools.  

Schumacher believes that there is no better gift to give your child than the gift of a Catholic education.  She looks forward to the opportunity to share her talents/gifts with Pope John/St. Boniface Schools and to give back to the schools and community that fostered her educational goals.
