I loved school and learning new things.  I wanted to “spread the love of learning” with future students.

What do you love about teaching?
I love the community of Hill City.  The small school allows us to get to know our students and their families, which I believe is important.  The admin and staff in Hill City care about the students, families and each other.
We work together to achieve the best for students, families and the town. I love to watch the students learn new information, change and grow.
