Special Education

Welcome to New Prague Middle School!  This is my 18th year teaching 6th grade special education at NPMS, but 29th year teaching.  I received my undergraduate from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa with a double major in art and secondary education.  I received my masters from Mankato State University, now known as Minnesota State University, with the degree of Multicategorial Special Education.  I have had a great deal of experience:  7-12th grade art teacher in Iowa, a substitute teacher in various south metro schools, a 7-9th grade special ed. teacher at Kenwood Trail Junior High in Lakeville, and my current position at NPMS.  My husband and I have lived in New Prague since 1992 and have three children.  Brok is 24 and recently finished his college education in Kansas;  Quinn is 21 and will be starting back to college for a degree in nursing; and Reid is almost 15 and attends 9th grade at NPHS.  I look forward to working with you and your students this year and making a difference in their lives.
