Going Back to College...

I have accepted a full time teaching position at Dakota State University for next school year. so I will be resigning from my position of Instructional Coach at the end of the school year. I will be teaching four courses in the College of Education at DSU: Social Studies methods, Geography, Native American culture, and Survey of Middle School. I am excited for the opportunity and challenge that awaits in the realm of Higher Education. I'm excited to work with college kids who want to be teachers and try to make as big of an impact as I can in helping them get prepared for what is to come. This was an opportunity that I could not pass up and feel this is the life path I was meant to take. 
I want to say that I enjoyed very much working with all the talented social studies teachers in the Sioux Falls school district. From day one, they were very nice to me and welcomed me into their classrooms. It was such a unique experience getting to come in and observe and get to know them, and work with them. I will greatly miss working for Sandy and working with my fellow instructional coaches. The middle school instructional coach team helped me out so much with getting accustomed to the job and providing answers to the thousands of questions I had. They welcomed me in with open arms and made me feel like an important member of the team right from the start, which I greatly appreciated.
