Principal Welcome

Beth Giese

My name is Beth Giese and I'm looking forward to the 2023-24 school year at K-W Schools! I am so incredibly excited to be your Elementary Principal and District Superintendent.

In addition to spending the past 28 years in education, I also am proud to say I was a part of the United States Army for 12 years. I attended college in Nebraska (Go Huskers!), received a masters at Winona State University and then completed a masters in Educational Leadership at St. Mary’s University.  My favorite educational opportunity was obtaining my National Superintendent Certification.

My husband and I live on a small hobby farm.  We love the outdoors and all that small town life has to offer. Our favorite adventures include our horses, Finnegan and Rip. We have three kids. Lauren is 22 and working in Indianapolis as a software engineer. Anna is 21 and studying at the University of Wisconsin to become a high school English teacher.  My son is 19 and at the University of Minnesota studying neurobiology.

If you have a question/concern please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here for you and your kids.  I can be reached at 507-789-7000 or email - [email protected]
