To prepare students to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
Mission: Our mission is to prepare students to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
A little bit about me: This is my third year of teaching here at South O’Brien. Before that, I was a substitute teacher at a neighboring school district. Before that, I worked for the Cherokee Area Economic Development Corporation. I am a wife and a mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a theatre fanatic, a movie lover, and a teacher. I truly believe teaching is a calling, not a job. I am always on the lookout for different ways to teach. My students deserve the best I have to give them, and my best is what I want to give them every day. I want my students to walk away knowing they are important, they are valued, and they can achieve anything they want as long as they are willing to work.
Classes I Teach:
7th grade Literature
8th Grade Literature
8th Grade Language Arts
I’ve been at South O’Brien since 2014
Hometown: I lived in Waubay, SD until I was 11. My family then moved to Watertown, SD. I graduated from high school in …… well, let’s just say it was 19something.
