         I received my degree in elementary education with a minor in physical education from Northern State University (Formally Northern State College) in Aberdeen, S.D.  I began my teaching career in Aberdeen teaching grades 4 - 6.  While teaching, I continued to take graduate classes and received my masters degree in school administration from NSU in 1983.  That same year I was hired as the elementary principal in Forsyth, MT.  I continued in that position until 1989.  In 1989 I applied for and was hired as the K - 8 principal in Manhattan. Manhattan's strong educational reputation, teaching staff, and community support make it an excellent place to work and educate kids.  My family and I enjoy not only the great school system but also the community and the many advantages of living and working in this part of the country.
