    Gentry Jaguars

    Welcome to 8th grade!!!  This is my 24th year of teaching English and my 14th year at Gentry Middle School.  I am originally from South Dakota and have taught a variety of secondary grade levels in South Dakota, Iowa, and Missouri.  I obtained my degrees in Secondary Education and English at Mount Marty College in Yankton, SD and earned my Master's at William Woods University.

    I have been married for 27 years, have four children, a son-in-law, and two grandchildren.
    In my spare time I enjoy reading anything that I can get my hands on.  I especially enjoy young adult fiction.
