Degrees and Certifications:


It is my pleasure to serve as K-8 principal and teacher at New Underwood School!


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.  


I currently serve as the Kindergarten through 8th-grade principal.  In addition, I am teaching Employability & Careers, Senior Experience, and Art at the elementary level.  I also serve as the advisor for student council.  


I am proud of our school and our students!
