Hello! I am Kaela Dejong, and this is my first year teaching. I graduated from Canton high school in 2013. Canton is a really small town near Sioux Falls, South Dakota a lot like Montezuma. I was involved in many activities including band, choir, drama, volleyball, and softball. After high school, I pursede a major in education and a minor in music. Soon after college, I got the opportunity to student teach in Tea, South Dakota, where I assisted the choir teacher with 6th-12th and 1st grade.
