Hello! My name is Mrs. Slykhuis and I am a 5th grade teacher. I grew up right here in Tea! I went to college at South Dakota State University. After college, I taught in Des Moines, IA for a year before coming to the Tea Area School District. I am excited about several changes being made in the fifth grade this year!My husband, Clark, and I live in Mitchell with his two boys, Cayden and Tryce, and we welcomed a new baby into our family in May. Paxton Curtis was born on May 23rd and has brought so much joy into our lives. I just love being a new mommy. Cayden is 14 and Tryce is 12. They are both involved in a lot of activities, so they keep us very busy! I also have a Morkie named Mazy that is quite the mama's girl! She likes to think she is in charge much of the time! I am very close with my siblings and their families, and my parents, who all live right in the Tea area.
I'm excited for another fun-filled year of learning.
