MS English / MS Reading / MS Social Studies
Hi! Iím Mrs. Amber Mikkelsen, and I currently teach language arts, 8th grade social studies, and reading in the middle school. I received my Bachelorís Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences at South Dakota State University, and my Master of Education Degree at the University of Sioux Falls. I am in my 15th year of teaching, and after 14 years in the family and consumer sciences department Iím excited for the new challenge of teaching language arts and social studies! My goal is to help every student become a confident, successful, life-long learner.
I live in Gettysburg with my husband, Andy, and our three daughters- Neva, Olivia, and Isabelle. I was born and raised in Gettysburg, and am grateful to be living in such a thriving community where education is a priority. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, cooking, and being outdoors.
I follow the grading scale listed in the handbook.
