New Teachers and Grade Level Changes


2nd Grade 

I'm Lauren Sellin (pronounced like Celine Dion) and I am excited to join the 2nd grade team at Deer Creek! I graduated from MSUM this past December with a degree in Elementary Education. I am so excited to get started in my own classroom and make a difference in kids' lives! I look forward to meeting with all of you soon.


1st Grade

My name is Kailey Grove and I am teaching 1st grade at Deer Creek for summer school, and 3rd grade at Deer Creek for the 2022-23 school year! I just graduated from NDSU/VCSU with 2 bachelor's degrees, one in Elementary Education and one in Human Development and Family Science. I recently got engaged in December, and am getting married September of 2023. I am so thrilled to start working with children of all ages, and cannot wait to make an impact on young minds!   I cannot wait to meet all of you, and work with you! 

5th Grade

My name is Kaylee Jablonsky, I have been a 2nd grade teacher at Deer Creek for the past 3 years, but I am excited to be returning to 5th grade next year! My husband Eric is an accountant and we have a dog Sansa, 3 year old son Decker, and 1 year old twin daughters Everly and Quinn. 

5th Grade

My name is Brook Gauld and I will be teaching 5th grade this year. This will be my 6th year of teaching. This year, I graduated from the University of Jamestown with my master’s degree in curriculum. Prior to my time in West Fargo, I was a 4th and 6th grade ELA teacher in Kindred, North Dakota. I have taught 4th grade at Deer Creek Elementary for 3 years and am excited for a new opportunity in 5th grade!

4th Grade

My name is Rachel Duerr and I am fortunate to be joining Deer Creek and the fourth grade team this year! For the past 8 years I have been teaching 4th grade at South Elementary. I have three boys, Caleb (17) and twins (Zach and Cole) that are 14. They are Mustangs, so I will occasionally be sporting some blue and orange around the school. 😉 My husband Tony works in the corporate office at Scheels. I am very excited for this new adventure and look forward to meeting and working with you all!
