Meet Band Director Mrs. Halsey
Greetings! I am excited to start my fourth year in the Wolsey-Wessington School District as the 5-12 Band. I greatly enjoyed getting to know the students and community member during my past three years as a Warbird, and I am looking forward to meeting many more of you in the coming days. This year I get the privileged of teaching 4th grade Music. I am excited to meet each student and parent as we get into the school year.
A little about myself. I grew up in Huron and I am a sixth generation resident of Beadle County. After high school I attended the University of Sioux Falls for Instrumental/Vocal Music Education. I student taught in the Huron Middle School with Julie Berger and Larry Petersen and at Buchanan Elementary with Barbara Nicholas. After student teaching, I was hired as a Kindergarten Para at Buchanan School for a semester before I accepted my position with the Wolsey-Wessington School District.
I have been married to Travis Halsey for four years and I love my summers off to spend time with him. This summer on June 1st Travis and I were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lydia.We love the new life as parents and enjoy each moment with our daughter. We enjoy visiting our family and friends, target and trap shooting, going for walks, and riding our tandem bike. Much of our time is spent at Living Hope Alliance Church were I lead worship and Travis is the youth director. In my spare time I love to bake and especially decorate cakes. I have enjoy culinary since I was young, and cake decorating has been a love of mine since I was eleven.
