Hello! My name is Kara Kallenbach and I am the 4th grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my second year teaching and I can’t tell you how excited I am.

I grew up on a farm around Esmond, ND, and went to school in Maddock where I was very active in sports. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Dickinson State University and currently live in Harvey with my boyfriend, Mike.

I have grown up in a family of farmers and ranchers. They’ve enriched a hard work ethic in me, which helps tremendously in my career field. I still enjoy going out to the farm and helping whenever I get the chance. Hunting and fishing are a couple of hobbies I really enjoy.

I chose a teaching career because I want to make learning a fun experience and be a positive role model in children’s lives.
