We missed you and we are glad you are back! WE continue to utilize Reading Eggs and Mathseeds in grades K-2 and Exact Path for grades 3-6. Both are individualized computer program that push students in content areas they excel in, and help in weak areas according to the NWEA formative assessment we give three times a year. Reading Eggs focuses on English Language Arts skills while Exact Path focuses on English Language Arts and math.
4th grade joins 2nd and 3rd rade in implementing Walk to Read. This philosophy meets students where they are in their reading. Staff will be able to hone in on strengths and weaknesses for student growth. Students will be moving from classroom to classroom each day in both grade levels depending on their needs. We will continue to alalyze its effectiveness and possibly add another grade level next school year.
I have spent my entire educational career with the Lennox School District (22nd year). I taught 4th grade for four years and 5th grade for five years. The last twelve years I have been an administrator. I spent four years as the curriculum and professional development coordinator, three years as Worthing Elementary principal and the past eight years as the Lennox Elementary principal. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Dakota in 1998 and my Master’s degree in Educational Administration in 2005.

We have four sons; Peyton (12th grade), Conner (10th grade), Talen (7th grade), and Griffin (2nd grade). I enjoy golfing, exercising, coaching and watching all the athletic events my sons participate in.
