My husband Dean and I live outside of Eyota on a dairy farm.  I have 3 children.  Jake is 23 and works at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND.  He will be starting medical school in the fall.  Kirby is 21 and a junior at South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD.  Gracie is
13 and in 8th grade at Dover Eyota..

This is my 26th year of teaching children with special needs and I am so very blessed.  They are the strongest and most courageous people I know.

Education: Bachelor of Science Degree from University of South Dakota, Masters in Education Degree from St. Catherines University.

Additional Degrees:  Autism Specialist
​                                Certified Personal Trainer

I have always wanted to be a teacher since I can remember. I used to force my two brothers to play school with me before I would go out and play football or baseball with them.
