Hello and welcome to our class site! My name is Michelle Riedel! I am entering into my 8th year as an Art Teacher and my 4th year teaching at Alcester-Hudson. I am beyond blessed to have found a career that I love so much! I enjoy spending my days creating and sharing with others. Before moving to South Dakota, I taught 4 years of art at Crestwood Elementary and Junior High schools in Cresco, IA. I have also taught studio Art classes and camps at the Octagon, Hearst, and Art Haus Art Centers. The Arts are a huge part of our family. My husband Grant and I actually met in an Art class at the University of Northern Iowa. My husband and I have two children; our daughter Raegan is almost 5 years old and our son Fynn will will be two in December.
