I am excited about beginning a new year here at Hill City Elementary! This will be my fifth year teaching in Hill City. My first three years were spent in Kindergarten and this is my second year in Second Grade. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach some students for a second time! Before moving to the black hills area, my family and I lived in the Abilene TX area where I taught for three years at Merkel Elementary. My husband and I have four wonderful children, Ashlea, Shannon, Alison, and Robert. As a family we love the outdoors which makes this area such a great fit for us.
