About The Principal

This year will begin my 15th year as principal here at Bob Callies Elementary in Garrison. Time flies when you’re having fun! I have an 8th grade daughter named Mackenzie, a 3rd grade son named AJ, a husband named Aaron, a tiny cockapoo named Gizmo, and a black lab named Bailey. I am originally  from Pierre, South Dakota.

I attended college at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education with a double major in Elementary Education and Special Education. I taught a first/second grade combination in California for 1 year, then a first/second grade combination, first grade, and Kindergarten during the four years I was at Tiospaye Topa School in LaPlant, SD. I obtained my Masters degree in Elementary Administration from NSU as well, and moved to Garrison for my first principalship. If your child has started school in Garrison from preschool or kindergarten, I am probably the only principal they know! I am starting on my second generation of students!  WOW!
