Michelle Haugland

Gumdrops Assistant Teacher

My name is Michelle Haugland. I grew up in a small town in Iowa and have lived all over the Midwest the past 13 years. My family and I just recently moved to South Dakota and we are so excited to be here. I have been married to my husband for 13 years and we have three school-aged boys that keep us on our toes. When my boys were little, I was a licensed childcare provider in my home for 5 years. Being a childcare provider was one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had. Children have always had a special place in my heart. I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to work at Candyland Child Development Center. I look forward to caring for your child.
