I graduated from Dell Rapids High School in 2013. I attended the Univeristy of South Dakota and recieved a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, minors in Reading and English as a New Language, and endorsements in Early Chilhood and Kindergarten. After attaining my undergraduate degree, I joined the Induction and Mentoring program (IAM) at USD to get a master's degree to become a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach. I taught in the Sioux Falls School District at Whittier Middle School in a 7th grade ELA classroom. I currently teach 7th grade ELA and Social Studies at Dell Rapids Middle School and coach C Volleyball.
