I was raised on a dairy farm in MN. After graduating from Tracy High School I attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. I graduated with a BA in Elementary Education/ Psychology with a Reading Specialty. I taught first grade in Nora Springs, IA before moving to South Dakota. I have taught second grade at Dell Rapids for 20+ years. I love the enthusiasm that second graders have on a “quest” for learning something new! I am so lucky to be joining them on these special learning adventures! I enjoy family times, a great project in my craft room and coffee! But my absolute favorite times are spent with the grandkids!
