I am the elementary secretary. I am the mother of 2 ½, Lacie, a sophomore in college, Mason, a junior in high school, Chris, a freshman in college in Germany, and a wife to my husband, Rick, living in the beautiful bluffs of Buffalo County. Though my family is a large part of my life, on the rare occasion that I get a moment alone, I enjoy reading, crafting, and spending time outside in the sun and in the woods. As you know, working in a small school requires all professional staff to play many roles around the building, and I am no exception. Though you will most likely see me keeping order in the elementary office (doing everything from answering phones and sorting mail to helping Ms. Bremer and the teachers) behind the scenes, I am responsible for coordinating and assembling the monthly newsletter, keeping the website updated, providing supplemental care in the nurse’s office, fostering an environment that encourages students of all ages to strive for academic success and personal growth, and bridging the gap between the community and faculty through good communication.
