Jackie Alme

Operations Coordinator

Whether Jackie is visiting classrooms, posing questions to the children and encouraging thought-provoking conversations about the lessons they are learning, or skillfully overseeing day-to-day operations, Jackie’s expertise is top-notch. Her two little girls join mom at school, and their smiles are contagious just like their mom’s. Jackie joined Kinderberry Hill in 2001. She majored in elementary education with a kindergarten endorsement from St. Could State.

Samantha Tsang, RN

On-site Nurse

Sam joined our Kinderberry Hill family in 2018. She always knew she wanted to help people and nursing provides many great ways to do that. But, she also had a passion for education and knew she wanted to teach.

Sam graduated from South Dakota State University in 2012 with a bachelor of science in nursing and went on to work in oncology, hospice, and palliative care. In 2016, she received her master of science in special education from Dominican University.

Nursing has given her the skills and confidence to work with, and for many different types of people. She is thankful for the opportunity to serve the Kinderberry Hill community and promote family health.

I am happy at school because we play outside on the playground.
