To teach is to touch a life forever.....Nice to meet you!!!

Hello!  I am so glad that you are visiting my website.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I am a married mother of two.  My husband's name is Matt.  I have two beautiful daughters named Maquenzie (19) and Montana (13 yrs).  Yep, that makes me feel real old!! We have our home in my hometown Volga.  We have lived there for 25 years.  My husband grew up in Brookings and graduated from Brookings High School.  Family is my number one priority and I am super proud of my girls. My passion is children, and I am fortunate enough to say that I spend my life working with my passion.  I love what I do and the children in my classroom become part of my family. 


I graduated from DSU with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education in May of 94.  I have previously taught 4th grade in the Colman-Egan School District, 5th grade at Hillcrest Elementary, 3rd at Central Elementary and Title Math for the Brookings School District.
