Emily Lafrentz, Sioux Falls, SD

Hello, my name is Emily Lafrentz, a teacher in the Sioux Falls School District for the past 20 years. I am a proud member of our local teacher association; SFEA. I joined when I was first employed by the district in 1997. I joined because I thought it was “the thing to do”, but as the years have gone by I realize it’s much more than that. It is my and countless other educators’ voices working together for what is best for education and our profession. If I were not so passionate about helping my students succeed in life, I wouldn’t work so hard to advocate for them. This is what my association helps me accomplish. I thank SFEA for the opportunity to meet and learn from so many awesome educators with the same goals as myself. SFEA Rocks for me and countless others.
