|Hi! My name is Mrs. Kristin Morse, and I am a first grade
teacher at Madison Elementary.
My husband, John, and I have two children, Abigail (Abby) and Ryan. We live on a farm northwest of Madison. John farms with his
parents. They raise Angus cattle, corn and beans.
I graduated from Brookings High School. I have a Bachelors
Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and
a Masters Degree in Elementary Administration from
South Dakota State University . I am also pursuing
a Reading Specialist Certification from the University of Sioux Falls.
After graduation from college, I began my teaching career at
Deubrook Elementary in Toronto, SD. I spent six years at Deubrook
teaching children in grades two, three, and five. For four years I had the opportunity to work
as a reading specialist/literacy coach with the SD Reading Initiative.
In 2005, I began working for the Madison Central School District at the GraceVale Hutterite
Colony in grades K-3. I started teaching first graders at
Madison Elementary in 2007.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, shopping,
walking, riding bike, and camping. My family and I attend most
home Jackrabbit football and basketball games.
