Welcome! I am thrilled to be at Sidney Middle School for a second year! Prior to this move I had the opportunity to teach first grade at West Side since the fall of 2007, which were wonderful years!
I was born and raised in Culbertson, Montana. I then attended the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. Later I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics through Walden University. Recently I finished the Administrative Licensure Program from the University of Montana. I love learning new things and I am excited to share that passion with middle school students.
My husband, Ted Simonsen, farms in the Girard Community. In 2008 we were blessed with our first daughter, Josie. In April 2010 our second beautiful baby girl arrived, Ally. In March 2013 our blessings continued as we welcomed our baby boy into the family, Jorgen.
In my free time I enjoy being with my family, spending time on the farm, being at the lake, and scrapbooking.
Thank you for visiting, !
