Kindergarten - Mrs. Giese


I am a graduate of Moorhead State University with a degree in Elementary Education. I also have Kindergarten Endorsement and a Psychology Concentration.  I have been with GHES since its conception in 2007 and have served 2 terms as a Board Member. My family and I moved to Starbuck at the end of 2000.  Prior to moving to Starbuck I have had teaching experience at every elementary grade level and operated a daycare in my home. My husband, Tom, and I have 2 sons.  Aaron and his wife, Tara, live in Glenwood. Austin attends Graduate school at the University of Jamestown. I love to do woodworking, craft and home improvement projects.


I am thrilled to be the kindergarten teacher at GHES! It is amazing to watch these young children grow and learn each day!! I consider it a privilege to be able to provide an education to the young people of this area!! GHES is truly a wonderful place to be and I look forward to the challenge of each new day!  We take pride in providing a family-like atmosphere for our students.


 My philosophy revolves around the old Chinese proverb: "Tell me and I'll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I'll understand". You will find my kindergarten classroom to be an active and busy place where students will be involved in hands-on learning throughout the day.
