Greetings! My name is Mrs. Giese. I have been teaching for 28 years. All of those experiences have been with children in grades 4-6. I love to read and travel. I also enjoy history. I live 5 miles north of Canby with my husband, Mark, and dogs, Lightning, Casey and Ruby, and Harley. I have two daughters, both Canby High School and college graduates. Nicole, Chad, Cael and their dog, Oakley, live in Redfield, SD. Nicole works at the Animal Health Center. She is a graduate of South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD.
