To start off the upcoming school year next week, New England Public School will have a new high school math teacher to introduce to the students. Erin Hauglid was hired to replace long time math teacher Tracy McSweyn, due to McSweyn’s retirement this summer.
Hauglid isn’t a complete stranger at New England School, as she student taught in there in the spring of 2013.
“I really did have a very good student teaching experience here,” Hauglid said. “I really liked the atmosphere, and working here when I student taught was a very enjoyable experience.”
Hauglid graduated from North Dakota State University in 2013 with a degree in Math Education. After graduation, Hauglid started teaching high school math in Wishek, where she stayed until accepting a position at New England.
For Hauglid, who grew up in the Belfield area, making her way closer to home to be near family was something that she always hoped would eventually happen. After she heard about the teaching position in New England, she knew that is where she wanted to be.
Another bonus to working in New England for Hauled is that she will be working in the same school system as her brother Ben Krebs, who is the Vocational Agriculture teacher at the school.
Hauglid is married to Joe Hauglid, who is currently the bookkeeper for Jim Weber Ford in Wishek. The plans are for him to join her in October when the couple will relocate to the Dickinson area.
In her spare time, Hauglid enjoys cooking and baking. She will be kept busy during the school year as she will be teaching Algebra I and II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and applied math.
