About Me

As an alumni of the Highmore - Harrold School I am happy to be an educator in the school that taught me so much.  I attended North Dakota State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education, a Middle School Language Arts Endorsement, and my coaching certificate.  I started my teaching career at Crow Creek Tribal Schools teaching 4th grade for five years.  I then ventured to Flandreau Public Schools for a few years.  This year will be my 8th year here at Highmore-Harrold.

Classroom Expectations

I expect all my students to come to class ready to learn.  I do not assign homework, any assignments that are not completed in class or study hall will then become homework.  I understand that there may be special circumstances that results in late work, please contact me if needed.  I believe every student in my class can learn if they are attending school everyday and working to their fullest potential.
