Kyle SchroederSisseton School District welcomes a new Music Teacher

by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

With the recent opening of a Westside Elementary music teacher position, the school district was worried about finding a replacement in the middle of the school year. But, as luck would have it, the perfect replacement was nearby and ready to go to work.
Kyle Schroeder, an Akron, IA native, has recently arrived in Sisseton to fill the teaching void that was vacant as Stephanie Brooks and her family relocated to Texas. Kyle graduated from South Dakota State University with a degree in Music Education in December of 2017 and began work for the Sisseton School District in January 2018. He thought upon graduating that he may be doing some substitute teaching jobs around the Brookings area, but little did he know that he would be accepting his first job immediately after graduation.
