My name is Samantha Andary! I was recently hired as a Site Lead for PK SAC. I grew up in a suburb of Austin, Texas and moved to Minnesota last summer. I got my Bachelors of Science in Urban and Regional Planning from Texas State University in San Marcos. My hobbies include kayaking, swimming, crafting, traveling, and of course Netflix for those lazy days! I love working with children, and hope to receive my Teaching License one day in Elementary and Special Education.
Kitty O'Dell, Support Para
I've been a para in the District for 11 years - five have been with the School-Age Care program. I am also a parent in the district. I have a daughter who is a senior at Sibley High School and a daughter who is a sophomore at Augsburg College. My daughters went all through Pilot Knob so I feel very much at home here knowing the teachers and the building. I enjoy getting the snack table ready for the students and playing board games with them. It gives me a chance to greet and chat with them about their day!
