My name is Nicole Dallman. I have been a member of SDEA for 15 years with the last four years being at the Mobridge-Pollock School District where I am a 3rd grade teacher. I became a member of SDEA at the beginning of my teaching career because I was looking for the insurance. What I didn’t know is that SDEA is so much more. I was able to get classroom support through Professional Development that was brought into our school district by MPEA. I also gained the support and comradery of fellow teachers that are also members.
