Mrs. Katie Albers
Hello, my name is Katie Albers. New Underwood is my home and many of you watched me as I grew up and graduated here. I am the superintendent and K-12 principal. This is a huge job but I am blessed with an amazing staff; each of them are professional and very capable. They, along with our students, are the reason that NU Tigers are the best!
I am a 1997 graduate of NUHS, and I completed my teaching credentials at Chadron State College in 2002. I spent some time directly out of college in the fundraising realm and worked as the regional director for Easter Seals South Dakota for two years before accepting my first teaching position with the alternative schools in Rapid City. During my eight years of employment at the Rapid City Academy, I worked with amazing teachers, staff, administrators, and students. I earned a master's degree in educational administration from South Dakota State University in 2010 and am a certified principal. In 2012 I chose to return to my alma mater. In addition, I have taught Employability & Careers, Senior Experience, and Art at the elementary level. I also serve as the advisor for student council.
