I have worked in the Head Start program for 19 years... all in Pillager!  Early Childhood is my favorite place to be... where else can you say, "Our play is our work!"

My husband, Brad, and I live in Pillager and have two sons attending school here.  Tanner is a senior and Ty is a sophomore.  They keep us busy running to all their sports and activities... and I am their biggest fan!
