TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I previously taught at Lake Preston for 2 years, which included 8th grade U.S. History, Sophomore World Geography/History, Junior U.S. History, and Senior Government. I am currently teaching at Watertown Middle School in which I teach 6 sections of 8th grade U.S. History

MY TEACHING STYLE

I really try to put a lot of the responsibility of learning on the students. Self-discipline and self-control are two things that can go along way for them in the real world. The more they have to do on their own and discover the better off they will be in the long run.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

2007 Spearfish High School Graduate; 2012 South Dakota State University Graduate

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I come from a family of teachers. My grandparents taught music at South Dakota State University, my dad taught band at the middle school, high school, and college levels, and he is currently working for the Associated School Boards of South Dakota, my mom has taught at the college level as well as substitute taught at the middle school and high school levels, my oldest sister taught middle school band in Texas (receiving teacher of the year honors in her first year) and my second oldest sister is currently teaching 2nd grade in Steamboat, CO. I guess you could say I went in to the family business.
