Physical Education

My name is Tina Slaathaug and I am the 4th-7th grade Physical Education teacher. I am currently in my 25th year of teaching with this being my 6th year teaching Physical Education in the Hayfield School District.  Previous to teaching Physical Education,  I had the pleasure of teaching special education at Murray County Central Schools and Fulda Elementary Schools for 19 years. 
I graduated from Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD with a major in both Physical Education and Special Education and a minor in Sociology. I also ran track and cross-country for Northern State University and I was the team captain for cross-country my final season at Northern.
When I am not teaching, I love to run, and I enjoy being outside as much as I can doing a variety of activities with my husband Gregg and three children Payton, Ethan and Drew. 
I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!

Our Children: Payton, Ethan and Drew
