Welcome to First Grade!​

 0030.JPGMy name is Julie Hersom.  I grew up here in Garretson and while I was in grade school I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I went to the University of Sioux Falls to earn my Elementary Degree.  I began my teaching career in 4th grade and have been teaching 1st grade since 1981.  I am fulfilling my dream!!

Dave and I enjoy spending time with my two daughters' families which include my six grandchildren. 

Every day in first grade is an adventure full of surprises!!!

Feel free to contact me with concerns or questions at  You may also leave me a voicemail by calling 594-3453 Ext. 314.
