My name is Marie LaRock and I am excited to be teaching 7th and 8th grade Special Education at Pipestone Area Middle School. I grew up in Pipestone and I absolutely LOVE that I get to teach in my hometown. I graduated from college with a degree in Education from Southwest Minnesota State University, I am currently enrolled in the graduate program at Bemidji State University working toward completing my Special Education licensure. I have been a part of Special Education since 2011 and I absolutely love what I do. I am so lucky that I get to spend my days with these incredible young people and I am looking forward to another great school year!

My husband, Michael, and I live in Pipestone. Together we have 6 children. We are always keeping busy with many different activities and love to spend time together. We enjoy going for bike rides, having a fire on the patio in the summer evenings, watching Wild hockey games, and playing board games together. Monopoly is currently a family favorite. smiley
