I grew up in Northwood and graduated from Mayville State in 2013. I came to Midkota that fall as “Miss Carlson” and I love it here! I married my most amazing gift of friendship, Jason, in 2016. We have a sweet baby boy, Nathan, born May of 2018. We reside near Grace City where my husband manages the cattle side of the family farm and ranch. Fortunately my husband is patient and a good communicator because I’m sure learning a lot at the T-T Ranch and love that there will always be something new for me to learn out there.
Willingness to be teachable and continually learn in life are important to me. Teaching is my passion! Just ask Jason. I love encouraging students and seeing them grow academically, socially, and emotionally. It’s an incredible gift to be in the position that I’m in. Each day I look forward to seeing my students and hope that I can make a positive difference in their lives as well as grow and learn alongside them.
I love cuddling, playing, and laughing with my baby guy, snuggling my dogs Penny Lou and Kira Sue, spending time with our horses (Monty and Diesel), family, friends, theater, laughter, ice cream, music and movies (particularly Christmas at anytime of the year), volleyball, neatness, organization, puzzles, board games, and reading. If you’re looking for a fun and easy read for all ages, Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo is a fabulous book!
