"A man never stands as tall then when he kneels to help a child."

Welcome!  My name is Janis Goeden. I graduated from Iowa State University in 1988 with a BS in Elementary Education. My husband and I lived in Omaha, NE, where I taught for 9 years. In those nine years I spent time in the classroom as a 3rd, 1st, 5th, Algebra and Pre-Algebra teacher.  We moved north to South Dakota in 1997.  I spent 5 years teaching in the Catholic Schools of Sioux City, IA, as a 2nd grade teacher.  I have been working at Dakota Valley Elementary since 2002. I signed on as one of the two Reading RecoveryTeachers and a Title Teacher. After 5 years, I returned to the classroom as a 1st grade teacher.  I have found my love in this grade and for the innocence of children of this age.  I am blessed to be working with such a wonderful staff at Dakota Valley Elementary School and shall retire teaching first graders.  Everyday is a great day for I am a 1st grade teacher!
