Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in the Yankton & Vermillion areas of the state and graduate high school from Vermillion. I have 1 younger sister who currently lives with me here in Ipswich and my parents have retired to the town of Menno, SD. I attended the University of Iowa for 3.5 years with a major in Microbiology before being called to be teacher. I completed my teaching degree at Mount Marty College in Yankton in December of 2004 and am certified in 5-12 math & science. I have taught at 4 other schools, Marty Indian School , Eureka Public School, Kimbal Public School & Crow Creek Tribal School. This the halfway point of my 13th year in education and I look forward to celebrating my 14th year here in December.
