Posted on 08/07/2019

Emily Delfosse, High School Science

Hello, my name is Emily Delfosse and I am looking forward to joining the McGregor staff as the new Science Teacher! I grew up in Cumberland, Wisconsin where most of my family still lives. I attended college at the University of Minnesota Duluth where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education. I spent the last year working as a naturalist at the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center teaching kids of all different ages cool things like stream ecology, rock climbing, geology and so much more. I am a lover of sports, especially the Green Bay Packers and the Badgers Men’s Basketball team. In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, reading books, spending time outside, and watching movies. 

Ryan Dillner, Dean of Students
I am extremely excited to be joining the McGregor School District as Dean of Students/Behavior Specialist for the 2019-2020 school year! I grew up in Shoreview, MN and after graduating high school, I attended the University of Minnesota  - Twin Cities.  From there, I went on to attend Bethel University to get my Masters Degree in Education and recently completed my K-12 Principal Licensure from Concordia University in 2018. For the past seven years, I've taught Middle School Science in New Prague, MN as well as coached football, hockey and baseball. Outside of my career, I spend most of my time fishing, watching college football, working on house projects, and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to getting to know the students, families and community of McGregor! 

Kayla Koll, Special Education
Hello, my name is Ms. Koll. I am 23 years old. I was born and raised in Minnesota and love living here. I grew up in Prior Lake, Minnesota but I graduated high school from Moose Lake, Minnesota in 2014. Once I graduated high school I moved to Duluth, Minnesota and went to the University of Minnesota Duluth. I graduated from there in May. While at UMD I had the wonderful opportunity to teach abroad in Slovenia. It was a marvelous experience with many memories. 
In my free time I enjoy going on walks, being on the lake, coloring, and watching movies. I enjoy spending time with friends and family as much as possible. My favorite season is fall because I enjoy looking at all the color. I love blankets and cups, I have them all over my apartment. I enjoy small towns and I am excited to be a part of the McGregor school, I can't wait to start the year.
