I started teaching school in 1983 at El Dorado Middle School. Since 1985, I have been in the USD #357 Belle Plaine School District. I taught middle school for 31 years before moving to the high school. During the 2015-2016 school year I was the assistant principal at the high school. Since 2016, I have been the principal at Belle Plaine High School.
I have been married to Bruce Happy since June of 1985. We have two boys, Clayton and Seth. Both Bruce and I graduated from Belle Plaine High School. Clayton is a 2016 graduate of Belle Plaine and Seth will be a 2019 graduate of BPHS.
Outside of school I enjoy attending my boys’ activities, being in the outdoors, and reading.
