Degrees and Certifications:
I have been in education since 1990 after graduating from Northern State University. All of my years since that time have been at the Britton School. I taught Title 1 for 10 years and have been teaching 5th grade since 2000. I love teaching fifth graders because they are the best! My expectations are high, my drive is with urgency, and I demand my students to do their best. Fifth grade is a big adjustment for the students but also comes with many privileges. We host 2 book fairs and get to take a field trip to NESODAK.
On a personal level, I have a beautiful extended family and am blessed with 17 children who call me grandma. My husband, Steve, passed away in October of 2012, after 38 years of marriage. In July of 2015, I married Allen Claeys.
