Shiloe Harsma - Head Teacher
I grew up in Flandreau, South Dakota with my parents, Paul and Stephanie Amdahl. I attended college at Dakota State University and graduated in December of 2010 with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a K-12 Reading and K-12 Technology Minor. I renewed my degree in July 2016 and 2021.
My family consists of my husband (Chris), my daughters (Josephine and Clara), and my son (Jared). My daughter gave me a grandson, Owen, during COVID-19. We live just outside of Madison, South Dakota on a small acre. We love animals of all kinds, currently we have fish, snails, and two cats named Jinx and Princess.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, cross-stitching, playing video games, watching movies, playing the piano, listening to music, and spending time with my family and friends.
I look forward to a great school year!
