A little bit about myself: I grew up on a farm in the southwest corner of MN between two small towns of Holland and Ruthton.  I went to school in a system very similar to the GHEC district.  I was a student in Ruthton until my sophomore year when we paired with the Russell-Tyler schools and became R-T-R combining three communities into one district.   I went on to attend Southwest State University(now SMSU) in Marshall, MN, majoring in history and earning my teaching licensure in 7-12 social studies and k-12 health education.  My first job fresh out of college was with the GHEC School District and I have been here ever since, my how time does fly!
