My family moved to Dakoka Dunes in July of 2015. We absolutely love it here!
I was born and raised in Yankton, SD, and my parents and 4 siblings all continue to live there.
I graduated from Mount Marty College with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements
in Early Childhood and Special Education. I taught Kindergarten in Avon, SD for 7 years
and then spent the past 8 years developing and teaching the preschool program for the Yankton School District. This is my 2nd year teaching at Dakota Valley!
I am happily married to Joe and we have
3 children: Nicholaus (22), Eliana (11), and Drake (8). They keep us busy....but we wouldn't have it any other way!
I have a PASSION for teaching and I love children! I am looking forward to a fun-filled year!
